BRIDGEWATER, New Jersey, May 20, 2011 - Hamamatsu Photonics introduces a new streak camera series for UV to
near-infrared measurements of extremely fast light phenomena. The C10910
series simultaneously delivers intensity vs. time vs. position (or
wavelength) information with single-photon sensitivity and temporal
resolution down to 1 ps. With such capabilities, these streak cameras are
suitable for measuring fast fluorescence lifetimes, response times of quantum
devices, electron bunch length and stability for synchrotron and LINAC
applications, and most photonic applications requiring high temporal

The C10910 cameras are versatile, ultrahigh-speed detectors. They are
sensitive at a wide range of wavelengths (from UV to NIR), depending on the
streak tube's photocathode selection. In addition, the C10910 can be
configured with various plug-in modules to optimize specific measurement
needs. For example, the streak camera can detect one-shot events or
repetitive phenomena in the GHz domain by selecting the appropriate sweep
plug-in module. For added flexibility, there are two high-sensitivity CCD
camera readout options to choose from, depending on the frame rate and data
acquisition requirements.

Also available are various peripheral devices for the streak camera, such
as spectrographs for time-resolved spectroscopy applications and optical
delay and triggering units to assist in synchronizing with various light

The C10910 will be exhibited at the LASER World of Photonics show in
Munich, Germany on May 23-26, 2011.
