Abstract:

The objectives of the contract were 1 to improve reproducibility and uniformity of image intensifier panels 2 to improve speed of response and output brightness 3 to prove feasibility of building image intensifier panels in modularized construction 4 to have black and white output image and 5 to be able to view the image in moderately illuminated rooms. Most of the objectives of this program have been closely approached. The reproducibility and uniformity of small intensifier units have been improved. Also, the spectral response at the lower end of the visible spectrum has been increased. A modularized image intensifier panel, consisting of nine modules of 2 inches x 2 inches has been built with acceptable uniformity and yield of fabrication. It had white output light and the image could be viewed in an ambient illumination of 20 ft-c. In a later development, still considerable improvement in picture quality has been obtained and a resolution of 180 linesinch has been reached. It is concluded that the stage has been reached where the fabrication of larger modules and modularized panels could be undertaken. Author
