Abstract : This report relates to the construction of two cathode-ray tubes having fiber optic inserts. These tubes should be similar to cathode-ray tube Type 10KP7-A, except that P-25 phosphor is used instead of P-7 and there shall be a fiber optic insert 3'' x 3'' located near the outer edge of the useful screen area. This contract has two basic problems compared to conventional tubes of the same type: (1) The production of the fiber components; (2) The sealing in of the rather large fiber section in a manner which is leak tight and sufficiently free from strains to permit normal exhaust procedures (exhaust and simultaneous baking).
