ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 3, 2015 — A new optical streak camera from Sydor Instruments LLC has dual slots to mitigate space-time focus astigmatism and employs a curved image plane for superior focus out to the image boundaries. The Ross 5800 features a new tube design plus other enhancements that result in a performance improvement throughout the range of the 35-mm cathode area. Control is via the Ross pp software. Meanwhile, the company’s DynaCal optical calibration module (OCM) works with the Ross 5800, as well as 5100 and 8200 streak cameras. It is the only in situ OCM that enables dynamic calibration. When combined with the remote, automated calibration capabilities of the module, it results in maintained accuracy and lower cost of ownership versus “remove and bench test” options. It maintains better than 1 percent measurement accuracy at any time and before any shot.
