The streak camera is one of the fastest photodetection systems, while its capability of multiplexing is particularly attractive to many applications requiring parallel data acquisition. The degree of multiplexing in a streak camera is limited by the crosstalk between input channels. We developed a technique that introducing a fixed time delay between adjacent fiber channels in a customized two-dimensional to one-dimensional fiber array to significantly reduce crosstalk both at the sample plane and at the input of a streak camera. A prototype system has been developed that supports 100 input channels, and its performance in fluorescence microscopy is demonstrated.
