We have tested several types of TOF counters based on scintillators and photomultiplier tubes in order to measure the lifetime of hypernuclei. With the advantage of small counter size, we obtained less than 30 ps timing resolution, and about 50 ps overall TOF resolution. The various factors in this resolution have been studied. The timing resolution dependence on the beam intensity is also studied.
