Abstract : The patent describes a true image intensifier which converts a target image at low light level to an intensified image at the output of a laser. A modified conventional electron image intensifier is used as the input to a conjugate resonator laser cavity for spatially modulating one of the cavity reflectors with an image of the target. The modulated reflectivity of the end reflector causes the laser output to be spatially modulated according to the target image. The spatially modulated laser output is then projected onto a screen, providing an intensified image of the target.
