Paper Abstract

The FPS vidicon which is a magnetic focus, electrostatic deflection design has clear advantages over other design combinations. These include high, uniform resolution; low shading and low distortion; low power; small size and ruggedness. New, shorter tubes are described. These include a 1-inch diameter tube with about 3.1 inch length overall, yielding 75% MTF at 400 TV lines; and a 5/8-inch tube with 2.3 inch length with 50% MTF at 400 TV lines. The reasons for the high performance are discussed; the possibility of making still smaller vidicons is considered, indicating that vidicons with image diagonals as small as 0.2 inches are feasible.
