Anyone know how to make night vision goggles using a photomultiplier?
I made myself a little infrared nvg, but it has little to no range. And real nvgs use photomultipliers, buttttttt you can’t find anything on how to make a real pair of night vision goggles. If anybody could give me a hand I would be very appreciative.

High voltage power supply, battery set. Two stage (or more) photomultiplier tube and fiber optic window behind a short tube wide angle fast aperture and F number optical system. A low power eyepiece optic behind the last fiber optic window will give a slightly magnified view of increased intensity when you power up the photomultiplier tube system.
Or buy a military surplus unit, or an I 3 multiplier optics eye lens from Collins Electro Optics.Source(s): My friend Bruce Meyers used an i 3 unit to patrol galaxies for supernovae about 35 years ago. Very interesting views!

night vision requires a ton of tech. you have to shoot out infrared beams, which are invisible to human eyes, and receive what bounces back, and decode it, then display the bounced beams on a visual display.
none of this is cheap or easy to code. it's far simpler to just buy them.

if you type this question on the search bar it might show you how to do it

i think your night vision goggles use microchannel image intensifiers. i kind of doubt you could get hold of any of those and wire them up without spending as much or more than you would just to get the goggles
