Abstract:

Several 6 in x 6 in size low resolution type image intensifier panels were fabricated. The panels could be classified in two groups 1 high gain-slow panels with standard luminous gains of several hundred 2 low gainfast panels with gains in the order of ten. Panels of the last group had decay time constants lower than 20 milliseconds and proved to be acceptable for movie film projection display. The fabrication of double-layer CdS-CdSe panels was unsuccessful. Some image intensifier panels were constructed using the evaporated E1 films sandwiched with CdS PC powder embedded in epoxy resin. The maximum resolution of these panels was 250 linesinch, and the maximum gain was around ten. A very disturbing nonuniformity exists on these panels which has to be eliminated before any practical use can be made of them. Author
