Image Multipliers

  • Albert Rose
Part of the Optical Physics and Engineering book series (OPEG)


This chapter is necessarily brief, not as a measure of its importance, but rather as a measure of the simplicity of the principles involved and the relatively high degree of perfection of the available devices.
