Paper Abstract

A universal streak camera which works in synchroscan and single-shot modes with 3 plug-ins (synchroscan, fast and slow) has been developed utilizing a microchannel plate-incorporated streak tube. The synchroscan plug-in features low jitter of less than 4 ps, and high-speed sine-wave deflection from 80 to 160 MHz, achieving a limiting temporal resolution of 5 ps. The fast plug-in offers temporal resolution of better than 2 ps with triggering jitter of less than t20 ps. The slow plug-in provides longer time windows from 10 ns to 1 ms/15 mm in 16 ranges. Shutter operation down to 100 ns in duration is available with a maximum repetition rate of 1 - 10 KHz for the 3 plug-ins. An on-off ratio of more than 1:106 has been achieved by using double gate operation at photocathode and built-in microchannel plate.
