1 September 1995 Theoretical comparison between image intensifier tubes using EBCCD and phosphor readout
Author Affiliations +
This paper discusses issues pertaining to the use of Electron Bombarded Charge Coupled Devices (EBCCDs) as readout structures for image intensifiers. Theoretical models are presented that form the basis for comparison of image tubes using EBCCDs and those using phosphor screens in terms of several figures of merit including: collection efficiency, signal to noise ratio, dynamic range, and spatial resolution. Some discussion is included with regards to the current state of EBCCD production and difficulties in realizing all of the benefits that EBCCD readout structures could provide.
