Paper Abstract

We have agreed upon dynamic range measurement definition for use by commercial manufacturers of electro-optic streak cameras. Dynamic range is to be defined as the ratio of the peak amplitudes of an upper and lower usable signal. The limits of usable signal are to be the points at which the pulse width at half maximum is broadened or changed by 20% as referenced to the width of a pulse near the middle of the dynamic range.
