BRIDGEWATER, N.J., May 26, 2011 — For ultraviolet to near-infrared measurements of extremely fast light phenomena, Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced a streak camera series.
The C10910 series simultaneously delivers intensity vs. time vs. position (or wavelength) information with single-photon sensitivity and temporal resolution down to 1 ps. The cameras are suitable for measuring fast fluorescence lifetimes, response times of quantum devices, electron bunch length and stability for synchrotron and linear accelerator applications, and photonic applications requiring high temporal resolution.
They are ultrahigh-speed detectors and sensitive at a wide range of wavelengths, depending upon the streak tube’s photocathode selection. They can be configured with various plug-in modules to optimize specific measurement needs. They can detect one-shot events or repetitive phenomena in the gigahertz domain by selecting the appropriate sweep plug-in module. For added flexibility, there are two high-sensitivity CCD camera readout options to choose from, depending upon frame rate and data acquisition requirements.
Also available are various peripheral devices for the streak cameras, such as spectrographs for time-resolved spectroscopy applications, and optical delay and triggering units to assist in synchronizing with various light sources.
