Abstract
The image intensifier (1.1.) tube is used in devices for observation with the eye, the film camera or television camera of objects under poor illumination conditions. The tube is an electrostatically focussed electron lens with a cathode and an anode and between these two possibly one or more electrodes. The tension on the anode is positive with respect to that on the cathode and may vary between 12 kV and 45 kV, depending on the type of tube. The high voltage generator is included in the housing of the tube, or may be designed as a separate unit. The photocathode is a light sensitive layer, coated on the inside of the input window. The anode screen is a green phosphor layer deposited on the inside of the output window.
