Night Vision Paintball Goggles work by using the existing light and channeling it through a series of lenses and a photo cathode tube that intensifies the light by taking the protons and converting them to amplified electrons. The electrons are blasted into a phosphorus screen by an electrical charge that switches the electrons back to visible light. Ambient light generated from the moon, surrounding man made light or an infra-red light can help amplify the image also. The process of changing the protons to electrons and back again is what causes the image to become a green hued appearance. There are 4 generations of night vision with level one being the most affordable and commonly used. A night vision device can use an infra-red illuminator to assist in generating light. It's an intense beam of invisible light that works like a flash light and allows your night vision device to have an extended range.
