17 January 1990 Application Of Streak Cameras In Sub-Picosecond Photometry Of Emission From Diode Lasers

A high gain and time resolution streak camera calibrated for photometric measurements in the visible to near infrared region of the spectrum was used to show that it is possible to measure single photo-electrons without noise. This camera was used to measure 0.9 picosecond laser pulses from a commercial diode laser emitting at 785 nm. As the instrumental time resolution of the streak camera was 0.80 picoseconds, the deconvolved laser pulse duration was estimated to be below 0.5 picosecond. This is the shortest current driven, gain switched laser diode output pulse yet reported. The detection was linear and without any loss of time resolution for a signal intensity equivalent to 150 photo-electrons per rsolution element on the streak camera output.
