Paper Abstract

A brief historical review of temporal-analyzing image converter tubes(ICT) development in our country is presented. Some recent results in designing and manufacturing of the tubes capable to operate in visible, near infrared, ultraviolet and soft X-ray spectral regions are given. There is a great variety of the available image converter tubes which provide pico and femtosecond temporal resolution in circular, single streak and synchroscan mode of operation, as well as picosecond resolution in single and multiframe photography. High technical parameters of the created tubes ensure their successful application for high speed events recording in laser and plasma physics research, solid state and semiconductor physics, nonlinear and fibre optics, microelectronics and optical computing, laser ranging, mind/brains imaging, and so on. Further directions in designing of completely new type of temporal-analysing image converter tubes, will be outlined, while the special attention will be drawn to the tubes with the electron beam sensitive CCD detectors.
