Abstract : The objective of this Project is to advance the state-of-the-art of Large-Area Electronic Display by developing a new high-resolution electron-beam deformation system for thermoplastic film and a novel optical projection system. The optical design for the Model C TIRP objective is complete. This objective should resolve a 3,000 line record over all, but the extreme corners of the 50 x 50 mm format. The system is well corrected over the major portion of the visible spectrum and should have a transmission exceeding 40%. Electron optical development has yielded great improvement in beam current. With a newly designed cathod lens the GMG Electron Gun has approached the required performance goals. The State-of-the-Art Electron Gun is being used for system check-out. Sensitivity and spatial frequency data are being generated for the elec tron gun-thermoplastic combination. Development of the system for dynamic corrective waveform generation is showing good results. Most of the circuits are complete. The dual roving circle tube has successfully generated both astigmatism functions and a third signal which when squared yields dynamic focus. (Author)
