Paper Abstract

Streak tubes design in General Physics Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences is traditionally supported by computer modeling. Numerical examples which illustrate the main phases of electron image formation inside such tubes are presented and discussed in this paper. Some factors resulting in spatial and temporal resolution decrease are examined in details. These factors include various geometric and chromatic aberrations of electron-optical focusing system, dynamic aberrations of deflection system, temporal instrumental function broadening due to Coulomb interaction effects inside the electron beam. Contribution of photoelectrons spread in energy and angles to spatial and temporal resolution is also studied for various photocathode types and streak speeds.
