Paper Abstract

New generation of streak tubes intended for single-shot and synchroscan operations with femtosecond time resolution was computer modelled, designed, manufactured, tested and adopted for further application in laser research. The developed PV-FS type tubes provide close to 100 fs-time resolution in single-shot streak mode. It is important to note that the PV-FS tubes may be equipped with Peltier cooled S1-photocathodes and their spectral sensitivity may cover the range of 115 - 1550 nm. The developed photocathodes have very low surface resistance (tens of Ohm per square unit). New tubes offer a high (more than 50 line pairs/mm) spatial resolution when recording ultrafast optical images with femtosecond time resolution. Due to keeping the PV-FS external geometry similar to the well-known PV-type tubes it becomes possible to install new devices into available streak cameras (AGAT, Imacon 500, etc.).
