- Datasheet


The CBF500 is well suited for single shot analyses of ultra fast optical phenomena with high dynamic.

All settings and data transfer are controlled via Ethernet.

A power full control panel Web page, from embedded server, provides a simple method to configure settings, control the state of the instrument, and display or store acquired data.

The CBF500 is a licensed product developed under CEA contract.

Operating principle

The light phenomena are focused onto the photocathode of a streak tube. Photocathode converts the photon in a number of electrons proportional of the intensity of the light.

These electrons are accelerated, swept and after which they are bombarded the phosphor screen to create an image.

A digitizing system is coupling to the screen tube via fiber optics to read-out the image.

This system enables precise digital acquisition stored in image memory (raw data).

Data can be processed (analyzed and data corrected) and transferred via Ethernet to provide a two dimensional waveform data.
