Abstract

Progress in the development of a proximity intensifier for astronomy is very encouraging. A few samples have now been produced that exhibit good blue response, resolution, gain, dark emission (when cooled), and freedom from field emission. Manufacturing yield of such samples is still low. In the next year we expect to see improved yield and performance through continued refinements. An important next step is to discover and eliminate the cause of lost counting efficiency, observed in several diode intensifiers.
