A new streak tube with the photocathode of 4x40 mm size is designed for the detection of dynamic spectra with a time resolution down to 2 ps and spatial resolution up to 35 lp/mm. The four-electrode design is adopted for a tube electron-optical system. A fine mesh accelerating electrode is placed at a distance of ~1 mm from the photocathode. A pair of deflecting electrodes are equipped with an electron trap, providing beam blanking.
