Abstract:

The basic limits of vision and image detection are discussed. Experimental results with the direct view intensifier are reported. A general discussion of pickup tube limitations concludes that the image intensifier orthicon is a very suitable pickup tube for a brightness intensifier amplifying a low light scene. Other intensifications methods and storage operation of intensifier orthicons are also investigated and discussed. The use of the image intensifier orthicon for optical pulse ranging is suggested.
