Paper Abstract

Dynamic range measurements have been made on EEV P8307 Photochron II type) streak image tubes with both internal microchannel plate (MCP), and externally coupled wafer intensifier tube, image amplification. When arranged for equal radiant gain at 560 nm, both configurations showed comparable dynamic range of approximately 1100 and approximately 2900 for 30 ps and 100 ps duration (fwhm) input pulses respectively. The variation in dynamic range with photocathode current density was also measured and the results compared to a computational model based on Coulomb repulsion in the image tube. Experimental data are compared to the model and shown to be in moderate agreement.
