We have compared the operating characteristics of five types of image-converter used in picosecond-resolution streak cameras. Operational characteristics of the RCA** C73435 tube, used successfully in the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory (LLL)-designed streak camera and by others, are reviewed, and new dynamic range data are presented. A version of the Instrument Technology, Ltd, (ITL), standard STM100 tube, reduced in size to fit the LLL camera configuration, was operated in our camera and its characteristics were studied. A developmental, magnetically-focused tube, designed in collaboration with International Telephone and Telegraph Corp. (ITT), has also been operated in our streak camera and these data are included. IJeasurements are included on the Hamamatsu 1495X operated in a camera made b the tube manufacturer. Finally, an English Electric Valve, P855, was tested as mounted in a commercial streak camera. Deflection factors, dynamic range, operating voltage requirements and other technical operation characteristics are compared.
