This Article Deserves Expansion[edit]

Calling physicists and others who may have designed high-speed cameras, or optical sensors. Advances in physics ultimately depend on building new and better instruments. In fact, there is no such thing as modern physics without our base of devices. The streak camera is one of those really nice devices. Here's what I have found with a quick search. EXPERIMENTAL METHODS IN THE PHYSICAL SCIENCES: V29C, Volume 29 F. B. Dunning, Randall G. Hulet Academic Press, Apr 16, 1996 - Science - 435 pages

There are some references in Section 8.4 (~ pg 199) as well as a brief discussion of some types and applications. If you can find and paste the list of references related to Chapter 8.4 here that would be useful. Thanks. Codwiki (talk) 02:51, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

nuclear testing[edit]

I thought that streak cameras were used for photographing early (and maybe not so early) nuclear weapons testing, but this article doesn't say anything about that. Gah4 (talk) 02:15, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
