The streak tube is intended for fast running processes image registration in a streak mode. The tube has a photocathode applied on an input window made of uviol glass, an accelerating gird electrode, a focusing electrode, two pairs of plates with pin inputs which deflect the image into mutually traverse directions  and a blue or green screen applied on a fiber-optic disk.
