Paper Abstract

The design and measured performance of new femtosecond streak camera are discussed. The experimental setup that has been employed in the assessment of the single-shot streak performance of the camera will be described and data will be presented to show that the present design of camera has a resolution of approximately 300fs. This is very close to its theoretically predicted temporal resolution of 250 fs for current operating conditions. Design modifications aimed to further improve camera performance to its limiting temporal resolution of ~100fs will also be outlined.
