Paper Abstract

S1 streak cameras with time resolution beLter than 10 ps are now currently available at the Centre d'Etudes de Limeil. They integrate a standard P 500 image converter tube slightly modified to allow the S1 photocathode's deposition. Almost 70 % of the tubes have 1.06 μm sensitivity greater than 50 pA/w and 60 % are in the 100 to 400 μA/w range. It is also possible to regenerate the 1.06 pm sensitivity when necessary, thus solving the difficult lifetime problem of these tubes. Dynamic range of a few hundreds is possible for 47 ps I.R. laser pulses and more than 64 for 12 ps pulses.
