Paper Abstract

The Modular Image Converter Streak Camera of the bfeizmann Institute of Science was built according to the previously reported design 1) . Tests of streak linearity, jitter and dynamic range were carried out. A novel technique, employing the sweep of a fast oscilloscope beam was used for determining both streak linearity and absolute calibration. Two new multistreak plug-in modules were built: a Krytron based low jitter module for 50/100/200 ns sweep time and Krytron/transistor module for 1/3/10/30 ps sweep. Technical details and testing results are presented. The camera has been used in experiments on the self pinching effects of an intense electron beam, where its usefulness and convenience as a research tool were demonstrated.
