Paper Abstract

The variation of dynamic range of a picosecond image converter camera is analysed in terms of its time resolution. It is observed that the dynamic range is proportional to the square of the resolved time. This phenomenon is explained in terms of a photo-electron emission "life-time" which is proportional to the intensity of the photon beam absorbed by the photocathode of the time resolving image converter tube. The implications of this mechanism on the interpretation of picosecond camera results are discussed.
