Abstract : This work is in part a continuation of research performed on positive-grid electron guns. The new effort which has been undertaken at this time is concerned with cathode, electron gun and electron beam problems; and with the development of a system for cycled operation of a camera tube of the image orthicon type. It is also a continuation of work in developing a target structure consistent with the requirements for a high sensitivity camera tube capable of 1500 television lines per inch at 50 percent sine-wave response over a 2 in. x 2 in. format. During this report period nine (9) 4-1/2 in. tubes were built and tested. The work at RCA Harrison was directed towards investigating the resolution obtainable in a 50 x 50 mm target area. (Author)
