Abstract
The Image Dissector was one of the first all electronic TV tubes and was described by Farnsworth in 1934. (Ref 1). Fifty years later, in 1983, more modern image dissectors were used to measure the electron bunch lengths in synchrotrons. The advent of modern computers and high-speed electronics enables these rather elderly tubes to be used in exciting new applications. This paper described how we have adapted the image dissector to enable the development of low cost instruments with exceptional bandwidth, sensitivity and sampling rate for optical signals.
