К011 nine-frame camera

K011Image_sample1 K011Image_sample_2

   The camera is intended for registration of images of fast running processes in a near infra-red and visible spectral range and measurements of their spatially-temporal parameters in 9-frame mode of recorded image. Record of the image from a streak tube screen is made by means of CCD readout unit with image input in the personal computer. Software provides the user with wide possibilities of processing the recorded image. 

Articles [49-52, 58, 61, 63] in "Publications" section are devoted to application of this camera.

Possible fields of application: 
  • ballistics;
  • combustion, detonation and explosion;
  • shock waves physics;
  • laser physics;
  • plasma physics including thermonuclear synthesis;
  • electrical breakdowns and discharges including lightning.
The main components of the camera: 
  • input objective F = 50 mm (a set of the objectives is available);
  • electromechanical shutter;
  • PIM-112 streak tube with S20 photocathode applied on a fiber-optic disk, two pairs of deflecting plates, one microchannel plate (MCP) and phosphor screen applied on a fiber-optic disk;
  • power supply unit;
  • control unit totally controlled by a computer;
  • RU-05M CCD readout system (1392x1032 pixels, 12-digit ADC, linear dynamic range ≥ 300) with an electrical (≤ 5 m) or fiber-optic (≤ 500 m) communicational line with the computer;
  • notebook with installed software;
  • neutral filter of 0.5, 1 and 2 density set on the input objective or its site;
  • frame window, which is set closely to the photocathode's fiber-optic disk and limits a sizes of a frame field;
  • frame test-object, which can be set closely to the photocathode’s fiber-optic disk for control of a spatial resolution;
  • fixing plate for mechanical fixation of the camera on a work site.
