Abstract

Use of the image orthicon tube as a detector in spectroscopy provides rapid response at controlled instants and, for short exposure times, greater light sensitivity than the photographic plate. The application of the orthicon spectrograph to the study of transient or rapidly varying light sources is discussed.
