Abstract

Detailed theoretical evaluations of picoframe-I- and II-type framing cameras are presented, and predicted performance characteristics are compared with experimental results. The methods of theoretical simulations are described, and a suite of computer programs was developed. The theoretical analyses indicate that the existence of fringe fields in the vicinity of the deflectors is the main factor that limits the dynamic spatial resolutions and frame times of these particular designs of framing camera, and possible refinements are outlined.
