Paper Abstract

We have developed a high-speed, electro-optic camera that features a large format; eight frames; and an accompanying eight-pulse, ruby laser illuminator. This system offers greater resolution and versatility than has been previously available. The eight 75-mm frames provide high dynamic spatial resolution (15 line pairs/mm) and time resolution (as short as 10-ns exposure time) to record fine physical details of rapid events. Four independent two-frame (tube) cameras complete with objective optics comprise the eight-frame array. Finally, pulsed ruby laser illumination with spectral filtering allows photography in intense ambient light.
