Paper Abstract

An excellent photon counting streak camera (PCSC) which can detect single photoelectron with high temporal resolution has been developed. PCSC is adopting a photon counting streak tube (POST) which incorporates tandem micro-channel-plates (MCPs). Using this camera, single photoelectron images can be obtained with high gain and high S/N ratio. And Spatial resolution is measured to be about 11 1p/mm at supplying voltage 1800V to MCPs. Further, by detecting center of gravity for each photoelectron image, spatial resolution of 30 1p/mm has been achieved. Temporal resolution is evaluated to be better than 2 ps at single shot operation and 12 ps at synchroscan operation. Therefore PCSC will be useful for many fields, for example, time resoluved Raman scattering, the life time of fluorescence, photon statistics, and so on.
