Abstract : The patent describes a device for enhancing video reception from a silicon target vidicon by reduction of smeared images. Conventional television scanning parameters are used to display images of the scene being viewed. Light rays from the scene are impinged upon a silicon target of photodiodes within the vidicon. A circuit is provided for grounding the target electrode between successive vertical scans of the electron beam thus reducing the time during which smearing of the image occurs.
