Abstract : Two developmental models of a 12 in. diameter CRT with fiber optic face plates were fabricated. The tube type designation is KC2474P19, interchangeable electrically with the 12BCP19. Fabrication of the large fiber optic plates was time consuming. The edge fibers on both of the tubes were skewed. The first of the tubes was not useful for photographic purposes due to the vignetting produced by fiber skew. The second tube had a non-reflective glass plate 11 7/8 in. in diameter by .040 in. thick cemented to the face. (Author)
