Abstract:

Research was continued on the development of a two-color storage tube having a single axial writing gun and a flat-faced screen. The second sealed-off tube was tested and the third completed and tested. The performance of the third tube was substantially improved over that of the two previous tubes. The uniformity of colorshift over the target area was considerably better, and the color range over the usable area was substantially greater. The design change responsible for this improvement was the incorporation of an electroformed nickel storage mask in place of the former stainless steel etched storage mask. The performance data relating to the second and third sealed-off tubes are presented. Author
