Paper Abstract

Dynamic distortion, which is caused by space-charge effect, widely exists in streak camera. When input light intensity becomes too large, the electric field caused by electric beam turns out analogous to that caused by image converter tube, which leads to the dynamic distortion. In this article, we analyze the theory of the dynamic distortion by experiments and simulations upon CST Particle Studio software. Results show that: the intensity of current and the space position along the photocathode shall affect the dynamic distortion, leading to defocusing effect and reduce both the spatial resolution and the temporal resolution. All above assist us to better understand the electric-optic system of image converter tube, and provide ideas for further experimental diagnose design.
