Streak camera from Hamamatsu measures quantum device response times

July 1, 2011
The C10910 series streak camera is designed for UV to NIR measurements of extremely fast light phenomena.

The C10910 series streak camera is designed for UV to NIR measurements of extremely fast light phenomena. It simultaneously delivers intensity vs. time vs. position (or wavelength) information with single-photon sensitivity and temporal resolution down to 1 ps. The camera can measure fast fluorescence lifetimes, response times of quantum devices, electron bunch length, and stability for synchrotron and LINAC applications, and most photonic applications requiring high temporal resolution.

PRESS RELEASE

Hamamatsu Introduces a New Streak Camera for UV to NIR Measurements

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., May 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamamatsu Photonics introduces a new streak camera series for UV to near-infrared measurements of extremely fast light phenomena. The C10910 series simultaneously delivers intensity vs. time vs. position (or wavelength) information with single-photon sensitivity and temporal resolution down to 1 ps. With such capabilities, these streak cameras are suitable for measuring fast fluorescence lifetimes, response times of quantum devices, electron bunch length and stability for synchrotron and LINAC applications, and most photonic applications requiring high temporal resolution.

The C10910 cameras are versatile, ultrahigh-speed detectors. They are sensitive at a wide range of wavelengths (from UV to NIR), depending on the streak tube's photocathode selection. In addition, the C10910 can be configured with various plug-in modules to optimize specific measurement needs. For example, the streak camera can detect one-shot events or repetitive phenomena in the GHz 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 on the frame rate and data acquisition requirements.

Also available are various peripheral devices for the streak camera, such as spectrographs for time-resolved spectroscopy applications and optical delay and triggering units to assist in synchronizing with various light sources.

The C10910 will be exhibited at the LASER World of Photonics show in Munich, Germany on May 23-26, 2011.
