The Channel Image Intensifier

  • C. E. Catchpole
Part of the Optical Physics and Engineering book series (OPEG)


The following material first presents the operating principles of the electron multipliers and the channel electron multiplier and the operating characteristics of single multiplying channels, then describes some of the manufacturing techniques used to make these devices, and finally describes some of the imaging devices which can be made using channel multiplier techniques and how, by using these manufacturing techniques, one can produce bundles of individual channel multipliers which can be used in various types of imaging systems.
