The primary object of this investigation is to design a system, including equipment and procedures, that can be used to evaluate the noise characteristics of photoconductive cells. The data once collected must be in a comprehensive and useful form. The secondary object is to use this system to evaluate a large number of cells of various types and to compare their noise profiles in a manner such that definite conclusions can be drawn concerning the absolute noise levels and profiles generated by the various cell types and the relations that may exist between the cells' noise output and the way they were fabricated.
