Abstract:

Research is concerned with determining the feasibility of an image intensifier isocon. The isocon gun will have a large-diameter, axiallyaligned separation electrode using a 4 plate steering assembly. The intensifier section will be the electrostatically focused section presently used on the C73477 and C74036. If a magnetically focused intensifier section becomesAVAILABLE, IT WILL BE INCORPORATED INTO THE DESIGN. Thin film magnesium oxide and aluminum oxide targets were evaluated. Equipment to test image isocons and image intensifier isocons was provided by modifying existing test equipment with the addition of necessary voltage supplies for operation of the isocon gun. A phase inverting amplifier was also added to present the isocon picture with the proper polarity. Efforts were directed toward mating an image intensifier section to the image isocon. Experience gained in making the image isocon has shown that isocon operation can be achieved with relatively little change in the standard image orthicon set-up procedure. Author
