- We have developed a framing tube with 80-mm photocathode for capturing two frames in less than 100-ns onto a 50-mm phosphor screen. A proven electron optics trajectory code was used to design the tube for imaging fidelity over wide dynamic range. This code's full accounting of space charge effects is essential for its ability to simulate accurately the distributed photoelectronic trajectories from the entire large photocathode area. Our approach and guideline for designing the electron optics are described. Results of trajectory simulation and test measurement are reported. Substantial correlations between the code expectation and the measured results are observed on relative resolution and distortion of the frame images. This tube has been integrated into an active framing camera system for field application.
