Paper Abstract

The current demand for inexpensive streak camera manufacturing leads to the necessity in development of a variety of relatively simple and low cost image-converter tubes. One such tube, known as PIF-C, designed and manufactured in the Photoelectronics Department of the General Physics Institute (GPI), is now commercially available. Its experimentally measured time resolution in streak mode has approached one picosecond, and 3 ps in synchroscan mode at 82 MHz operation frequency. In single frame mode at 100 ns exposure time, the spatial resolution over 6 mm input area is within 15 lp/mm. Electron optical magnification of the tube is 1.5 x. PIF-C tubes may be supplied with one of the S1/S20/S25 photocathodes, fabricated either on borosilicate glass, UV-glass, or MgF2 substrate. Its P11 phosphor screen is deposited onto the fiber optic window. EBI of the PIF-C/S1 tube is in the range of 5 (DOT) 10-10 A/cm2.
