This miniaturized streak tube is intended for low-illuminating fast running processes image  registration in streak and multiframe modes. It has a photocathode applied on a fiber-optic disk, a focusing electrode, two pairs of plates with pin inputs which deflect the image in mutually traverse directions , one MCP usually used as a electronic shutter and a blue/green phosphor screen applied on a fiber-optic screen.
