Abstract
The "time-resolution limited (TRL) dynamic range" of operation of Photochron picosecond streak cameras is shown to depend upon the time-resolution employed. Using photographic recording for events r,2 ps a TRL dynamic range of 30 is obtainable before appreciable time-resolution is lost and this increases to a value of 180 for 35 ps events. No accumulative saturation effects occur at a time resolution as short as 2 ps. By replacing film by an optical multichannel analyser (OMA) the camera TRL dynamic range was increased to ~ 150 for 4 ps events.
