Hamamatsu develops a new streak camera with the world’s highest level of temporal resolution


Hamamatsu, Japan – August 8, 2017 – Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has developed a new streak camera, FESCA-100, that achieves the world’s highest level of temporal resolution as a result of a newly developed structural design. The FESCA-100 can measure optical phenomena in 100 femtoseconds (one-quadrillionth of a second) with a temporal resolution twice as high as conventional products.

The FESCA-100 was developed for applications including the tuning of accelerators, where the measurement of light emission phenomena occurs in extremely short time periods by irradiating an accelerated block of electrons to a metal plate.

We will begin accepting orders from the 21 August 2017, initially our focus will be with institutions and universities which have accelerators. We will then extend our promotion to institutions, universities and companies who are conducting research on ultrashort pulsed lasers.

Hamamatsu will exhibit the new FESCA-100 at the International Beam Instrumentation Conference (IBIC) 2017 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA from 20 to 24 August 2017.
