Paper Abstract

Life performance of image intensifiers containing Litton High Performance microchannel plates is examined. Luminance gain, microchannel plate electron gain, and photocathode response decay data are presented and explained in terms of a simple model in which a source species population is reduced by combination with a poisoning species population.
