Paper Abstract

Recent developments and advancements made in photocathode, MCP and phosphor screen technology are reviewed in light of current requirements in the UV and IR regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The paper covers such topics as the spectral sensitivity, noise and operational characteristics of photocathodes; MCP gain and noise characteristics; resolution, bandwidth and noise characteristics of image tube phosphors; gated image tubes; and hybrid image tubes for optical communication. Finally, imaging with intensified CCD and CID cameras and multi anode MCP's are discussed.
