Paper Abstract

The revised version of the PIFO1 image tube was computer-simulated, designed and manufactured. For dynamic measurements of this tube, two laser systems were employed: YA1O3:Nd solid state laser with fibre optics compressor generating a 200 ns train of single pulses of 0.3 Ps pulse duration at 1.08 ,im wavelength, as well as two-modes Nd:glass laser generating sinusoidallymodulated radiation with variable picosecond modulation period at 1.06 im wavelength. Time-dispersed pictures from the PIFO1 phosphor screen were recorded by SIT-vidicon readout system through crossover 1ype microchannel intensifier. Temporal resolution of 1.3 Ps was measured at 10 cm/s streak speed and dynamic range of better than 30. The PIFO1 tube spatial resolution was 25 line pairs/mm over 6 mm input photocathode area, and its electron-optical magnification was 1.5x. Comparative technical parameters of PIFO1 and PVOO1 will be presented, as well as parameters of an experimental streak camera prototype built around PIFO1 image tube.
