There is increasing demand for high resolution image sensor for applications in high definition television, high resolution x-ray imaging in the medical field. In order to meet the requirements of these applications, a high resolution Plumbicon camera tube was developed at Philips Components. A camera tube for high definition imaging is required to have high sensitivity, good spectral response, high signal to noise ratio, low lag and retention. The tube is designed with electrostatic deflection to achieve uniform and high resolution. An additional design feature is the low capacitance target for highest signal to noise ratio. This is especially important in wide bandwidth high line rate systems. This feature in combination with new Plumbicon layer technology provides the benefit of low light level contrast detectability.
