Paper Abstract

A high-frequency synchroscan streak camera based on the PV-006A tube and intended for operation with actively mode-locked sources is presented focusing on possibilities of increasing the streak frequency. In the proposed camera the deflection plates serve as a capacitive element of the cavity, thus providing all the RF power to be localized inside this cavity. An electrical shutter and image intensifier are used to select the recording time from 100 ns to 1 ms. At the input of the RF streak circuitry, a tunnel-diode oscillator is used which is based on subharmonic synchronization by the photodiode signal. Test results show that a temporal resolution of about 5 ps in CW mode can be achieved with a 375 Rh6G dye laser.
