Abstract : The objectives of this contract were: (1) to improve reproducibility and uniformity of image intensifier panels; (2) to improve speed of response and output brightness; (3) to prove feasibility of building image intensifier panels in modularized construction; (4) to have a black and white output image; and (5) to be able to view the image in moderately illuminated rooms. The most effort during the first year of this program was spent on the study of reproducibility. Some problems of the modularized construction were solved. Image intensifiers with white output light have been built. Problems of ambient light viewing have been analyzed and the necessary techniques experimented. No appreciable improvement was achieved in speed of response and output brightness. (Author)
