Abstract : A detailed analysis of the noise and image transfer characteristics of second generation proximity focused image intensifier tubes has been made. The analysis resulted in an understanding of sufficient depth of the physical and statistical processes in the tube, forming the basis for the development of the wafer intensifier to its current status and showed the way for the development of longer life and higher performance image intensifiers.
