Paper Abstract

The performance of two area detectors developed at Brandeis University for structural biology studies is described: a vidiconbased detector designed for laboratory applications and a CCD-based detector designed for use with synchrotron sources. The vidiconbased detector head incorporates fiber optic tapers two image intensifiers and SIT vidicon. The vidicon detector is characterized by measurements of the DOE and the results of tests at a synchrotron beam line are described. The CCD-based detector head incorporates a fiber optic taper two image intensifiers a camera lens and a Videk 1320 X 1035-pixel CCD camera. Measurements of the performance of the image intensifiers several camera lenses and the CCD camera are described. Results of initial tests of this detector at a synchrotron beam line are presented and recent modification to the detector are described.
