Paper Abstract

The number of streack cameras used in research laboratory has been continuously increased du-ring the past years. The increasing of this type of equipment is due to the development of various measurement techniques in the nanosecond and picosecond range. Among the many different applications, we would mention detonics chronometry measurement, measurement of the speed of matter by means of Doppler-laser interferometry, laser and plasma diagnostics associated with laser-matter interaction. The old range of cameras have been remodelled, in order to standardize and rationalize the production of ultrafast cinematography instruments, to produce a single camera known as TSN 506. Tne TSN 506 is composed of an electronic control unit, built around the image converter tube it can be fitted with a nanosecond sweep circuit covering the whole range from 1 ms to 200 ns or with a picosecond circuit providing streak durations from 1 to 100 ns. We shall describe the main electronic and opto-electronic performance of the TSN 506 operating in these two temporal fields.
