Abstract:

Formulas were derived for the contrast gamma of the image intensifier and calculated on the computer. Spectral analysis of high purity CdSe powder of different origin was made. Different baking schedules for doping the powder resulted in more sensitive and more homogeneous layers. These powders gave fairly good sensitivities in plastic embedment too, where no further high temperature baking is necessary. Several image intensifier panels were built both with sintered and plastic embedded PC layers. Work was started on the constructing of the high resolution image intensifier, using evaporated EL films. Work on the preparation of evaporated EL films was continued. Iodine and gallium coactivators were used beside chlorine. Neither brightness, nor efficiency showed any dependence on the coactivators. Life testing of these films is being planned. Author
