Abstract :

The radio frequency photomultiplier tube (RFPMT) combines the picosecond timing resolution of a streak camera with the fast readout of a photomultiplier. It is an entirely new device, currently under development at Yerevan and Glasgow in collaboration with Photek Limited (UK). Combination of the RFPMT with the optical frequency comb results in a high resolution (1 ps), high rate (├ó┬?┬ą 1 MHz) and highly stable (10 fs/hr) timing technique for single photons. Such a device potentially has a large range of applications in fields ranging from physics to biomedical imaging. The principles of operation of the RFPMT will be described and possible applications to ultra-precise measurements in Physics and to ultra-high resolution optical microscopy will be outlined.
