Abstract : An investigation was made of the advantages of using an image converter tube as a high speed camera shutter and as an image brightness intensifier. With the 1P25A (sniperscope) image converter tube it was found that exposure times of thirty millimicroseconds with a gain in image brightness of two are easily attainable. A comparison of the 1P25A camera with a Kerr cell camera shows the advantages of the 1P25A camera. The construction and use of the camera is discussed and the development of a novel 14,000 volt square wave generator is given. (Author)
