Paper Abstract

In the early seventies, dark spots were noticed on image intensifier tubes which had been used to observe detonations. This paper deals with the research and development resulting in an improved flash-proof image intensifier tube which is fully interchangeable with unprotected image intensifier tubes. Intensification, contrast transfer, and operational life of flash-proof tubes are similar to unprotected tubes. All sizes of image intensifier tubes can now be manufactured with a flash-proof feature.
