Paper Abstract

Historically, television pick-up tubes have been used in the entertainment and/or commercial fields to pick up an event for display to an audience. The use of the vidicon as a radiometric sensor can be much more demanding on the tube and requires a more rigorous definition of terms to describe the performance of the tube.* The method of measuring these characteristics and the manner of stating the derived quantities, also, must be more quantitative and objective than previously needed.
