Paper Abstract

The temporal performance of a streak image tube has been evaluated through a wide-ranging investigation of its temporal response characteristics for various input optical profiles. The concept of a profile-related resolution characteristic is presented which implies that the temporal structure of the input signals can be resolved with proper fidelity. The profile-related temporal resolution has been predicted to be approximately 1 ps for a streak tube that has a limiting time resolution of 250 fs.
