Abstract
This paper discusses the capabilities and limitations of a pyroelectric vidicon camera used to profile 10 lisec CO2 laser pulses. Points examined include dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio capabilities, spatial resolution capabilities, uniformity of sensitivity, maximum faceplate irradiance, and required EMI and RF shielding. The relationship between camera performance and pulse length is also discussed. Samples of data acquired and requirements of an adequate data processing system are presented.
