Abstract:

The drawbacks of the grooved type construction of the image intensifier became evident in the last experiments see AD-605 135. On the other hand, recent measurements gave hope that the gain in the sandwich type construction can be increased by a factor of more than ten. Therefore, it was decided to discontinue the work with the grooved type, and do more systematic work for the improvement of the sandwich type construction. This work led to some improvements in the PC characteristics, and gains up to 170 ft. Lambert per ft-candle were measured on elementary PC-EL light amplifiers. Author
