Abstract
When subpicosecond laser pulses are recorded, allowing for their distortions by the input optical system becomes important. Previous studies were concerned with the pulse pulling caused by aberrations (1) and by the dispersion of the glass refractive index (2). The present paper analyzes the phenomena associated with the non-isochronism of the image construction on the IC photocathode, namely, the pulling of the pulse, the distortion of its shape in the case of a circular aperture (in the circular or spiral sweep regime) and the distortion of the image on the IC screen for a slit aperture (in the linear sweep regime). The non-isochronism arises because of the curvature of the laser beam wave front (WF) in the photocathode region (3).
