Abstract : U. S. Army Electronics Command specified the best effort development of fiber optic faceplates for cathode-ray tubes (CRT's) with high transmission in the 3700 A region. A design goal of 85 percent transmission in the region of interest was established. A glass having high transmission in this region was developed which was satisfactory for drawing into fibers, and faceplates were fabricated from this glass. The faceplates were 1/4-inch thick and exhibited a transmission of 90 percent with the desired wavelength. One faceplate was successfully incorporated into a high resolution, high-UV performance CRT. This tube will far surpass presently existing tubes for annotation of ultra-violet sensitive dry process films.
