Paper Abstract

Experiments verify that spectral matching factors for cathodes and phosphors can be used successfully to predict the important "film gain" for image intensifiers used in streak cameras when the luminous or other gains are known. A Pll spectral source made from filters and a white light source allows a simple Pll gain measurement to be made. This measurement is useful for direct calculation of film gain, independent of intensifier cathode spectral variations. Because of lower noise, proximity focused microchannel intensifiers have a definite advantage over electrostatic and magnetically focused intensifiers for streak-camera use. Other developments are discussed.
