Abstract:

A camera tube, the infracon, with a cooled photo-target for work in the 0.65 to 40-micron spectral region was investigated. A monocrystalline semiconductor material, working on the accumulation principle, was used as a photo-target. The photo-target turned out to be effective for the transmission of a television image in 0.65 to 4 0 micron spectral region. When the tube was tested, parameters were obtained which testify to the possibility of obtaining television images of objects heated to a temperature of 125C and higher. The threshold strength of irradiation at this temperature is approx. 0.1 microwattssq mm. The received image is practically inertialess. Author
