Abstract
Signal to noise ratio is an important parameter to evaluate the 3rd generation low-light-level image intensifier. In this article, voltage in different poles have been changed respectively, output signal to noise ratio referring to different voltages have been studied, and the relationship between each voltage and output signal to noise ratio has been analyzed. The study results show that voltage of photocathode is not less than 150 V, voltage of MCP is between 800 V and 900 V, and voltage of screen is between 5000 V and 6000 V while output signal to noise ratio of filmed image intensifier is optimized. The study in this article is worthwhile for developing signal to noise ratio of the 3rd low-light-level image intensifier sufficiently.
