Paper Abstract

The Pyroelectric vidicon (PLV) is an infrared (8-14 micron wavelength) sensitive television-type camera pick-up tube. As can be seen from Figure 1, the tubes presently being produced can be configured into portable, battery operated, electronic imaging systems with full TV-compatible tape recording and playback capabilities. (The system illustrated is a laboratory modification of a "home recording", standard 2/3-in. vidicon camera system.)
