Laser-Induced Arcing in Cathode Ray Tubes

by R. T. Hodgson, A. B. Minn, J. D. Rockrohr
Laser-induced arcing in cathode ray tubes has been used to study the effect of spontaneous internal high-voltage arcs under normal operating conditions. Ruby and Nd:YAG laser systems were compared as laser sources for the breakdown. Various arc-suppression schemes for CRT systems were evaluated for future use.
