Abstract:

The report describes the work performed 1 to improve the optoelectronic characteristics of the low resolution 40 linesinch PC-EL type image intensifier 2 to fabricate high resolution 1000 linesinch image intensifier panels 3 to build an experimental compact projection system incorporating the image intensifier panel. As a result of this work, CdSe sintered and plastic embedded layers were produced with conductivities higher than 10 to the minus 7th power mhoscm at 0.1 ft-c illumination, and with dark conductivities lower than 10 to the minus 8th power mhoscm. The reproducibility of preparation and life-time of EL thin films have been improved. Low resolution image intensifier panels with improved gain, speed and image quality grain, uniformity and contrast have been made. High resolution panels have also been built, but with lower gain and worse image quality than those of the low resolution panel. A compact optical demonstration unit has been constructed for demonstration of the capabilities of the image intensifier panel. Author
