Fast framing camera with independent frame adjustments

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We have designed, built and tested a fast framing camera that works in the visible and short infrared region of the spectrum, from 300 nm to 850 nm. The camera has four separate channels. Each framing channel has its own individual trigger input and individually adjustable framing gate width. Each channel is spatially separate from the other channels as well, thus allowing for complete independence among the four channels. The output from the four channels in the camera is recorded on one piece of 4 in. by 5 in. sheet of film. Each channel has a circular recording format with ... continued below

Description

We have designed, built and tested a fast framing camera that works in the visible and short infrared region of the spectrum, from 300 nm to 850 nm. The camera has four separate channels. Each framing channel has its own individual trigger input and individually adjustable framing gate width. Each channel is spatially separate from the other channels as well, thus allowing for complete independence among the four channels. The output from the four channels in the camera is recorded on one piece of 4 in. by 5 in. sheet of film. Each channel has a circular recording format with a useful diameter of 18 mm. The channels are positioned on the corners of a square with a center to center spacing of 4.45 cm (1.75 in.). The camera utilizes commercially available gated intensified microchannel-plate tubes. The camera contains its own power supply and gating circuits. It required four gating inputs (12 volts). The electronics occupy a volume of 27 cm x 33 cm x 14 cm. The framing part occupies a volume of 21 cm x 25 cm x 5 cm. Characteristics of the camera, such as: framing times, spatial modulation transfer functions, gate delay, and uniformity were studied utilizing a 35 picosecond long blue light pulse, generated by a nitrogen-pumped dye-laser system. A pulsed semiconductor laser at 820 nm was used as well for the setup.
