Paper Abstract

Single-point streak tube This device is designed for recording very wide passband optical signals. The system consists of a single-point streak converter tube followed by a CCD sensor for picking up the image. This tube is derived from a streak tube that has been specially optimized for this application. The optical signal is input in a photocathode, the emitted electron beam is focused on a luminescent screen. The beam is deflected by an electrostatic effect and the trace for-med on the screen is representative of the temporal development of the input signal.
