Streak Camera Calibration Tools
Sydor understands that your Streak Camera data is only as good as your calibration.
Sydor offers a suite of products specifically for use with Sydor’s streak cameras and other available measurement instrumentation. These include input sources, targets, fixtures and adaptors that augment the operation and enable precise and repeatable calibration of ROSS Streak Cameras.
Optical Comb Generator
The Sydor Optical Comb Generator delivers up to visible pulses for the most demanding applications. It is ideal for accurate, time base calibration of electro-optic instrumentation, sensors, detectors, and streak cameras.
Fiberized Laser Pulser (FLP)
The Sydor Fiberized Laser Pulser is a compact VCSEL connected to a fiber output. It is unpowered, and is designed to be driven with an external pulse generator and is ideal for calibrating streak camera sweep times longer than 1µs.
Fiberized Laser Pulse Generator (FLPG)
The Sydor Fiberized Laser Pulse Generator (FLPG) is a compact, VCSEL-based, optical pulse generator that delivers a triggered laser pulse capable of repetition rates ranging from single shot to 300 kHz for the most demanding applications. It is ideal for accurate, time base calibration of electro-optic instrumentation, sensors, detectors, and streak cameras.
Free Space Reticle Nest
The Sydor Free Space Reticle Nest assembly provides a mechanism to hold and align precision calibration reticles for use with ROSS Streak Camera systems.
Free Space Flat-field Illuminator
The Sydor Free Space Flat-field Illuminator is a large aperture uniform RGB LED light source that can be operated in DC or pulsed mode. It’s an ideal source for acquiring flat field images or as a backlight for the Free Space Reticle Nest.
CCD Trigger Combiner Box
The Sydor CCD Trigger Combiner Box (CTCB) provides the flexibility to trigger the CCD in the ROSS Streak Camera with an external source in addition to the ROSS internal source. This is ideal for environments without a pre-trigger built into their timing system. The CTCB enables the ROSS electronics to trigger the CCD for auto-calibration routines and then allow an external source to trigger the CCD for live shots.
Serial to Fiber Adapter (Extended Communications Link)
The Sydor Serial to Fiber Adapter (Extended Communications Link) provides optical isolation of camera controls for any of the Sydor ROSS Streak Cameras. The Adaptor provides an optical communication interface between the ROSS electronics and the host PC. This enables remote operation in electrically noisy environments over distances up to 60 meters via duplex multimode fiber.
