    The main application for channel electron multipliers is in the production of compact, high-gain image intensifiers. The channel plate has certain unique characteristics which influence the design of the intensifier and the performance of the finished device. It is the purpose of this paper to relate the characteristics of the channel plate to the demands of the tube with particular reference to i... View full abstract»

    The reception of amplitude-modulated television signals is considered, under noise-limited conditions where the signal-to-noise ratio of the demodulated signal is controlled by the noise figure of the receiving equipment. The magnitude of the `demodulation factor¿, relating the signal-to-noise ratio on carrier to that at video frequency after demodulation, is discussed. It is concluded, from expe...

    To provide an understanding of the relative recording performance of different tapes the paper determines what takes place when the magnetic field from a writing head acts on the particles in the tape. Methods of measuring the following are described: (1) the shape, size, and position of the recorded transition between two oppositely-magnetized regions as a function of writing current; (2) the dep...

  • The television colour burst signal as a secondary frequency standard

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):567 - 570

    The colour burst signals transmitted by the New Zealand television networks (TV1, TV2) are normally generated by rubidium vapour oscillators. While not primary standards, these oscillators are extremely stable and, provided they are calibrated, can serve as frequency standards. Every colour television receiver normally contains a quartz oscillator which is accurately locked in phase to the colour ... View full abstract»

    Problems encountered in engineering the interface between a modern data extraction and display system and an existing secondary radar system of earlier design are described. The radar and the ATC building, which are in Iceland, are about 55 km apart. This paper discusses various interference design problems encountered before, during and since the installation and commissioning of the system and t... View full abstract»
