Abstract

A method and apparatus for converting electrostatic optical patterns to digitized electrical signals is shown in Figures 1 and 2. The structure in the Figures generates electrostatic patterns that are spatially digitized and each pixel can be read individually by calling up its unique address. Modifications of the basic structure make possible the simultaneous reading of pixels which is of great importance when the electronic conversion time is short.
