This report covers a new type of cathode ray tube which is capable of storing images over long periods of time. The tube was developed by Dr. Krawinkel with the idea of eliminating flicker in television pictures. This tube also be used for recording and storing impulses of short duration for comparisson purposes. The writing time is about 1 mm. in 5 x 10-8 seconds and it is believed that this can be increased to 1 mm in 5 x 10-10 seconds. The first laboratory samples of this new type of cathode ray tube were completed in 1944.
