Paper Abstract

Applications of fiber optics are increasing in scope and importance in medical, commercial, and military fields. One example of this is the application of fiber optics to low light level image intensifier systems in the form of faceplates and flexible fiber optic ropes. Some uses of fiber optic components in image intensifier systems are illustrated in Figure 1. Faceplates are employed in three-stage image intensifier tubes as field flatteners for the electron optics, as windows of the tubes, as optical coupling devices, and as heat sinks to protect the delicate photocathodes and phosphors. A flexible fiber optic tope which is directly coupled to an image intensifier tube can be used in a remote viewing station. A fiber optic rope of up to twelve feet can be used in this application.
