Abstract:

The program has as its goal the determination of the theoretical and experimental limits of the uniformity of silicon-metal Schottky barrier array vidicon targets. Work under this program has concentrated on developing a more complete understanding of the characteristics of a beam interrogated Schottky diode. As a result of this effort, a much more realistic model has been developed of high beam velocity vidicon targets than existed previously. This model has led to an improved retina design which avoids previous problem areas, and is being studied under the continuing program F19628-74-C-0142. It is expected that this new retina design will permit successful imaging with a metal-silicon Schottky barrier array vidicon target.
