Paper Abstract

A subnanosecond x-ray framing camera technique employing a fiber optics image dissector coupled to a 10 ps optical streak camera will be described. The output data from the streak camera can be reduced from photographic film or directly couple into a SEC Vidicon camera for immediate computer decoding of each scan line into a two dimensional picture. The use of the new subnanosecond plastic scintillator in front of the fiber optics dissector will also be discussed. The paper will include (1) the description of the basic principle, (2) fiber optics's image dissector construction, (3) time resolution considerations, and (4) experimental data on a prototype 7 by 7 array.
