A VERSATILE INSTRUMENT CAMERA WITH A MICROSECOND ELECTRONIC SHUTTER

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

There are three features of an electronic camera which set it apart from other high-speed photographic techniques. The shuttering problem is transformed from the mechanical realm to the control of an electron beam. This is an almost inevitable step in the development of high-speed devices since ease of control and freedom from jitter and vibration are such attractive qualities. The acceleration of the electrons provides a mechanism for introducing energy into the image. An image converter can produce an image of greater intensity than the object being photographed. This is a great advantage since high-speed photography is frequently hampered by ... continued below

Description

There are three features of an electronic camera which set it apart from other high-speed photographic techniques. The shuttering problem is transformed from the mechanical realm to the control of an electron beam. This is an almost inevitable step in the development of high-speed devices since ease of control and freedom from jitter and vibration are such attractive qualities. The acceleration of the electrons provides a mechanism for introducing energy into the image. An image converter can produce an image of greater intensity than the object being photographed. This is a great advantage since high-speed photography is frequently hampered by the lack of brightness of the image due to the short time in which the film must be exposed. Synchronism to the event being photographed or generating a synchronizing pulse when the shutter is "tripped" is relatively simple. (auth)
