Paper Abstract

In general, electro-optical imaging devices act as photon converters and/or amplifiers. They may convert and/or amplify a spectral distribution of input photons to output photons having a different spectral distribution. Alternatively, the input photons may be con-verted to an electron output current. Figure 1 is a generalized scheme which shows the multitude of possible image transfer and con-version routes which may be taken after the absorption of the input photons.
