15 November 1993 Performance characteristics of a 12-mm-active-diameter image tube
Author Affiliations +
A 12 mm active diameter proximity focused MCP image intensifier tube has been developed having a typical limiting resolution of 45 lp/mm, and a luminous gain of 1E4 fL/fc at 960 V, and a mass of 24 g. In produces about the same number of pixels in its active area as an 18 mm active diameter image tube having a limiting resolution of 32 lp/mm and a mass of 51 g. Its equivalent background input at 23 degree(s)C is essentially the same as an 18 mm tube; i.e., 2E-11 lm/cm2. This 12 mm tube is well suited for use in small and lightweight low light level direct-view systems and TV cameras.
