A central phenomenon regarding the actual behavior of SIT vidicons under pulsed light operation is the capacitive lag. Although this physical effect has been known for years, many users are unaware of its consequences in photometric measurements of transient phenomena. This work describes different aspects of SIT tube behavior studied in conditions designed to simulate their operation when viewing a streak camera or channel plate intensifier phosphor screen.
