Paper Abstract

Image intensifiers include a wide variety of electronoptical devices having diverse capabilities including color conversion, image deflection, shuttering, image scanning, and recording with linear re-sponse. They also differ greatly in their ability to intensify images. A criterion can be defined in terms of image information for comparing realistically the gain of one intensifier with another or for specifying a true gain over unaided Photography. This criterion depends in certain respects on the type of image being recorded.
