- 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.
The architecture of CBF500 is modular allowing to change module to meet your specific needs and requirement.
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.
