Abstract:

A new type of low-light-level image tube called the image dissecticon is briefly described. In order to attain a better understanding of its operation and performance, a critical examination of the tubes constituent parts is made. The minimum level of detection as well as the performance of the dissecticon with an ideal disperser is determined. Finally, image dissecticon performance is characterized in terms of the disperser characteristics. These relationships are then used to determine dissecticon performance for specific typies of dispersers. Although this analysis is concerned solely with the image dissecticon, it is readily applicable to the performance determination of other low-light-level image devices. Author
