Paper Abstract

To be commercially viable, a picosecond streak camera design must be sufficiently versatile to accept a variety of streak tubes, inten-sifier tubes, electronic circuit systems, etc., without difficulty, and a new camera has been developed with this feature as a major aim. A component part of this is a film transport mechanism which accepts standard 35mm cassettes, but may be operated at potentials up to 20 Kv above ground; this permits various intensifier tubes to be used, with their cathodes at ground potential, and with the film in contact with the fibre-optic screen face-plate of the tube. The SYNCHROSCAN system, enabling repetitive weak light sources to be recorded on a picosecond time scale, is one of the electronic options available with the camera.
