A number of time analyzing image converter tubes integrated with thinned, backside- illuminated, electron-bombarded (EB) CCDs were developed. Among them are PV001, PV003, and PIF01 streak tubes, differing from each other by their internal electron optics and external (metal-glass or metal-glass-ceramic) geometry. All tested EB CCD/streak tubes reveal relatively good behavior due to the long-term stability of their input S1 photocathode and reproducibility of the matrix parameters. These tubes differ advantageously from their regular type phosphor screen analogs by their rather high spatial resolution (40 lp/mm at 10 MTF for PV type tubes and 25 lp/mm at 10 MTF for PIF type tubes), reasonably good threshold sensitivity of 10-10 J/cm2 in standard, 10 MHz CCD scanning mode at 850 nm input radiation, and picosecond temporal resolution (better than 5 ps) at a relatively acceptable value of the light transfer function (approximately 102).
