Abstract : A comparison is made of the operating principles of image orthicons and image isocons. The superiority of the image isocon is shown by a graphic representation of the output signal resulting from an image of black, gray, and white stripes. Experimental intensifier image isocons having electrostatic focus intensifier section were constructed for evaluation of the performance of the combination. The tube performance is expressed in terms of resolution, aperture response, signal-to-noise ratio, and dynamic range. Information on the equipment necessary for operation of the intensifier image isocon and operating procedure is included. (Author)
