Paper Abstract

The system performance of a synchroscan streak camera is discussed in view of (i) the instabilities of the oscillator driving both the laser mode-locker and the camera sweep circuit, (ii) the fluctuations of the period of the incident synchronous and repetitive light pulses. Temporal and spectral analysis of randomly time and amplitude modulated equidistant sequence of light pulses is carried out. The interpulse time jitter of the light beam represents the major contribution to the degradation of the temporal resolution of the synchroscan camera.
