Paper Abstract

For a number of applications in which an enhanced red sensitivity is required, like e.g., night vision, surveillance, laser-induced fluorescence and non-destructive testing, DEP has developed a very sensitive second generation image intensifier equipped with a Super-S25 photocathode which is called the super generation image intensifier. In this paper the performance of the super generation tube is discussed in terms of photocathode sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, resolution, life expectancy and uniformity. A comparison is made with image intensifiers of the third generation. Some striking differences are presented.
