Abstract : 62705-A-0551-S-762705-A-05503ECOM0330-1-73*Camera tubes, Storage tubes, Lasers, Television camerasThe report describes the progress to develop a novel camera-tube capable of dual-mode operation, either as a real-time television camera-tube or as a storage camera tube with non-destructive readout, switchable upon command. Investigations of the target and electron gun for the storage camera-tube are in progress. The geometry of the initial targets proved to be suitable for dual-mode operation. The overall tube configuration is relatively firm, and parts drawings were completed. Calculations predict adequate sensitivity at 1.06 micrometers wavelength with a target-thickness consistent with resolution requirements. (Modified author abstract)
