The use of silicon-diode-array charge-storage targets in vidicon type of operation is discussed extensively in Chapter 15 and in published literature.1–7 Since the initial Introduction of such a vidicon tube by the Bell Telephone Laboratories, general interest in silicon-diode-array targets has developed greatly.
