Nikkor Lens for Fluorescent Screen Picture

The TV-Nikkor 35mm F0.9 is a lens for an indirect taking a picture of the X-ray fluoroscopy.
This lens is used to take a picture of the image made from X-rays on a fluorescent screen with the film or the camera tube.
Recently, we became possible to improve the brightness of the image of a fluorescent screen by using the amplifier tube called image intensifier.
The image obtained with this amplifier tube is small.
Therefore, we do the expansion image to the television by the relay lens system, or are recording the image to the movie camera.
Moreover, this lens is suitable to take a picture of a dark subject and the phenomenon which changes in the high speed extremely even if it is bright.
In addition, because this lens is designed for the short distance, you can obtain a good result of super macro photograph.

What is TV Nikkor?

TV Nikkor TV means television.
A brochure titled "Nikkor" published in September 1966 has the following explanation.


Nikkor, Nippon Kogaku, BAOL 6503-69, September 1966

A.  X-ray television Nikkor 35mm F0.9 (Leica L39 mount)

In X-ray televisions, when there is little light, electrical noise is generated in the image of the television cathode-ray tube, and the resolving power decreases. On the other hand, in order to avoid radiation damage of X-rays, X-rays should be used as weak as possible. X-ray TV Nikkor is a lens for taking images of electron tubes generated by X-rays.
Therefore, it is the most high speed lens in the Nikkor lens which is on the market. The resolution is also excellent at wide open aperture F0.9.

B.  television Nikkor EE 25mm F1.4

The TV Nikkor EE has an EE (electric eye) mechanism and automatically adjusts light passing through the lens. Therefore, the amount of light entering the imaging tube or vidicon used for industrial television can constantly keep a constant amount.
Also, in order to protect the vidicon, this EE mechanism usually blocks light and adopts a special mechanism in which the diaphragm of the lens operates when photographing.
