Single Shot 200 fs (typ.) Temporal Resolution
FESCA-200 (C6138)
APPLICATIONS
●Research of the process of energy relaxation of
quantum well semiconductors
●Research of the dynamics of chemical reactions in
the femtosecond region
●Research of the dynamics of ultrafast laser diodes,
ultrafast optical logic devices, etc.
●Diagnosis of femtosecond lasers

The FESCA-200 is an ultrafast streak camera with a temporal


resolution of 200 femtoseconds (typ.). It is designed for use
with single-shot or slow-repetitive phenomena. It can analyze
the process of energy relaxation and the dynamics of chemical
reaction in the femtosecond region in combination with
femtosecond pulse laser.
Used in combination with the HPD-TA Streak Image Readout
System, it provides full remote control of streak camera func-
tions via a GPIB interface.
