Title: QPF electron gun with high G4 voltage using internal resistor

Abstract: An internal resistor within a color cathode ray tube (CRT) is connected to a voltage source and is coupled across a G4 grid and a G6 grid of the CRT's multi-grid quadrupole (QPF) electron gun. De-coupling the G4 grid from the G2 grid in the electron gun's prefocus lens and operating the G4 grid at a higher voltage as used in the gun's high voltage main focus lens moves the equivalent lens of the prefocus and main focus lenses toward the CRT's display screen and reduces electron beam magnification and spot size for improved video image definition and focusing.
