A series of gateable tubes is described. These are intended for use with gate times down to less than one nanosecond. The tubes require gate pulses under 100 volts. Their principal feature is a gate electrode of fine mesh, fine enough as not to be resolved in the image. Their advantage over conventional gated image tubes with coarse mesh or ring gate electrode is lower gating voltage making pulse generation easier. Their advantage over the "proximity"-focussed microchannel plate (MCP) tubes is that they have less problems with internal resistivity capacitance effects which limit speed.
