Abstract : Efforts were continued on the development of the WX-3867 Mirrechon signal storage tube. The WX3867 will be capable of electric charge pattern storage, nondestructive reading, gray scale, simultaneous reading, writing and erasing without excessive crosstalk, electrostatic focus and deflection and electron multiplier output. It will be approximately 4 inches in diameter and 15 inches long. Experiments on storage target making continued. Development of new lens was begun. Spiral type lenses were made and tested. The first sealed off tube was completed. (Author)
