Abstract
High speed imaging of plasmas is limited to relatively short record lengths and is very expensive. Portions of the tradeoff space where slightly reduced spatial resolution allows gains in record length and reduced costs are poorly explored. HyperV Technologies Corp. proposes to construct a 100 pixel fiber coupled streak camera as a proof of concept towards an eventual goal of constructing a 100x100 pixel fiber coupled framing camera with a speed of 20 MHz or better, and a record length in excess of 2500 frames. This will allow 2500 frame movies of fast, bright plasma events to be recorded in a single shot. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: The primary commercial application is in sales or rental of the device to researchers performing experiments in which long record length at high speed is needed and a 10k pixel resolution is acceptable. This includes magnetic fusion devices such as tokamaks, as well as plasma propulsion, and basic plasma physics research. However other low-shot-count, fast, bright events could be recorded as well, such as in applications in ballistics and explosives.
