Abstract:

NVERSION STORAGE TUBE. The tube is to be capable of simultaneous write and non-destructive read operation at video frequencies up to 10 megahertz. During this quarter the initial device was fabricated and tested using a circuit which allowed selection of any single electrode on the wafers in the stack. Additional etching experiments were conducted in an effort to evaluate the possibility of etching the hole arrays in the digitizer plates. A digital addressing system which should operate at 10 megahertz has been designed. This system will provide sufficient information to display a bar chart exhibiting eleven shades of gray in a sequential manner. It also allows demonstration of the random access capability to the individual target elements. Modified author abstract
