A dissector is an electron-optical device designed for measurement of periodic light pulses of subnanosecond and picosecond duration. LI-602 dissector developed at BINP is widely used for routine measurements of a longitudinal profile of electron and positron beams at BINP electron-positron colliders and other similar installations. LI-602 provides a temporal resolution of about 20 ps. A new generation of picosecond dissectors based on the PIF-01/S1 picosecond streak tube was created recently. The results of temporal resolution calibration of the new-generation picosecond dissector carried out at the specialized set-up based on a femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser and application of the dissector at BINP accelerators and MLS storage ring will be presented.
