The S3C-1 is a Solid State Streak Camera (S3C). Similar to tube based streak cameras the S3C-1 captures temporal changes of light intensity along a line. Intensity values are sampled at up to 2 GSamples/sec and saved. The photosensitive line is 65 µm wide and composed of 200 individual elements along its 5 mm length. Each element consist of a sensitive photodiode and an amplifier.
A new and particular feature of the S3C-1 is the continuous recording. It enables to capture events without having information when they occur in advance. This „Post-Triggering“ simplifies or even allows to use the camera for particular applicatins.
