Paper Abstract

A comparison of different manufacturers' microchannel plate image intensifier tubes (MCPTs) in coupled video systems is presented. Comparative performances in the areas of optical gating speed, resolution, gain, and phosphor efficiency are discussed. Relative sensitivities for various combinations of coupled MCPT/TV imager systems including P-20 and P-20R phosphors cascaded to FPS (focus projection and scan) electrostatic vidicons with silicon or Sb2S3 targets and CID (charge injection devices) solid state imagers are included.
