Methods are discussed for measuring those characteristics of a germanium diode which are important in video-detector application. Some of the measuring techniques described were designed for rapid production-line checks. A theoretical analysis of the operation of the crystal diode as a video detector is presented. The forward and back conductances have been assumed constant over the range of operation, and loads with both small and large time constants have been considered.
