Paper Abstract

The development of an image converter framing camera with the feasibility of operation at frame rates of up to 50 million frames per second is described. The camera incorporates a new 'grid' gated all metal/ceramic image converter tube which is manufactured 'in-house' by the vacuum transfer processing method. All solid state electronics are used to drive the image converter tube. Exposure and interframe times can be set individually to different times if required with these and other camera functions programmed and controlled via standard personal computer. Results obtained for the camera operating in its various modes are presented.
