A measuring system has been developed for studying and optimizing the time-resolution capabilities of fast photoelectric devices, such as standard and microchannel type photomultipliers. The system incorporates a subnanosecond light-pulse generator capable of operating at repetition frequencies up to 3 MHz with output light pulses having a full width at half-maximum of less than 200 psec, and a zero-crossing discriminator which has a time walk of ±40 psec over a 170 mV to 8 V input-pulse amplitude variation. Averaging the data from several successive measurements, the measuring system time resolution is 20 psec.
