Abstract : Presented is an applied research program to de velop a scannable photosensitive image detcapable of responding to modulation at a micro wave rate. The initial tube design has been com pleted, utilizing an image dissector electron gun, together with an X-band slow-wave struc ture. The first phase of the program, which was the construction of test diodes to evaluate the cathode surface, has been completed. Work on the second phase, which will be the evaluation of the deflection system using a complete gun test er, but without a slow-wave structure, has be gun. One gun tester has been completed, and the deflection system is finished except for the sweep amplifiers. (Author)
