Abstract : Such electron-optical devices as the cathode-ray tube (CRT), the image convertor (IC), and the multistage image intensifier, all of which are widely used in inspection and control systems and in automation and remote control, have some defects, in addition to their positive qualities. Information fed into these devices is recorded as an optical image on a luminescent screen, which is characterized, as a rule, by a low resolving power and a low luminous efficiency. The development of automation and computer technology requires a considerable increase in the resolving power and an improvement in the quality of the image obtained by these systems. An increase in the resolution of the CRT is particularly important because of its wide possible applications. The amount of information recorded on a CRT screen is determined by the size of the luminous spot of the phosphor. The smaller is the spot, the greater is the resolution of the screen, and the greater is the information that can be transmitted. (Author)
