Paper Abstract

The streak camera's high bandwidth and large capacity for carrying information make it a highly flexible data recording tool for imaging experiments. This paper describes how a streak camera system was used to make two-dimensional measurements of a pulsed laser system, the Free-Electron Laser (FEL), to aid operators in tuning the laser. The streak camera system measured beam position, full width, relative intensity, and shape on multiple pulses in a single sweep. These measurements were analyzed in real time and the information displayed immediately for the operators' use.
