Abstract

A specially designed image intensifier tube for optical image processing has been developed. This tube can achieve the many types of processing important for pattern recognition such as deflection, zooming, gating, rotation, intensification, and logic operation in a single device. Experimental demonstrations are presented. Magnetic rotation of a pattern is proposed. The tube can perform the operations even in low level or incoherent light. Since processing is performed electrically or magnetically with no scanning, the processing speed is extremely fast.
