Paper Abstract

A picosecond synchroscan photometer has been developed to obtain a picosecond temporal resolution and an improved dynamic range of more than 105 : 1, utilizing a newly developed synchroscan streak tube and a direct photomultiplier readout. Advantages include a potentially improved S/N ratio, a lower detection threshold and reduction in cost. A greatly improved high dynamic range of 2 x 105 : 1 with a temporal resolution of better than 47 ps has been demonstrated, by measuring picosecond pulses from a laser diode. The limiting time resolution of this system is estimated to be =10 ps. This technique and its limitations are discussed.
