Paper Abstract

The integration of a streak camera with a one-shot autocorrelator creates a novel diagnostic system. This system can measure optical pulse widths of successive pulses in a laser pulse train, where the pulse width is a very small fraction of the train length. The integrated system has a temporal resolution of better than 250 fs and can measure about 80 pulses separated by a minimum of 15 ns. This paper describes the nature of the optical signal that was to be measured and out-lines the performance goals of the system. The hardware configaration and theory of operation are also described. Laboratory data are included to show the system's sensitivity and resolution. Finally, recommendations for system improvement are discussed.
