Paper Abstract

Currently topical problems connected with the further development of image-converter streak tube diagnostics aimed to overcome the 1 ps temporal resolution limit are discussed. In this connection some approaches in streak tube designing are treated and some evidence of 0.1 ps temporal resolution achievement are given. The very promising possibility of recording 1.468jKm and 2.94/Km radiation with picosecond temporal resolution is clearly demonstrated. Measurements of KCl and NaCl semiconductor detectors intended for soft X-ray radiation recording offer further temporal resolution spreading into the subpicosecond region for X-ray streak tubes. Reliable radiation sources capable of providing ultrashort pulses in the visible (0.6./Km) and infrared (1.06; 1.468; 2.94/t m) spectral regions are briefly mentioned. Finally the need to design up-to-date Electron-Optical Measuring Systems (EOMS) consisting of modern image-converter cameras, read-out devices and picosecond lasers is particularly emphasized.
