Two techniques are used to obtain a direct readout of an ultrafast streak camera. The first method uses a linear solid state Reticon diode array and the second technique entails the use of a SEC vidicon camera. Both methods use fiber optics to couple the light from the output of the streak camera to the sensor. In addition, the SEC vidicon is interfaced to a PDP 11/40 graphics computer system for direct data processing. For both systems, data will be presented as to (1) dynamic range, (2) spatial resolution, (3) linearity, (4) signal processing techniques, and (5) problems and modifications of the devices including mechanical mounting procedure for attaching fiber optics directly to the array chip.
