Abstract

This chapter describes five electrooptical imaging sensors which have been or are now being developed for special applications. The first is a class of infrared-sensitive camera tubes in which the radiation image is sensed bolometrically, the second a directly viewed infrared imaging device, the third a sensor for the far-vacuum ultraviolet, and the fourth is the image dissector. The last is electronography, the formation of permanent images on media like photographic film by exposure with photoelectrons within a vacuum enclosure instead of with light.
