Paper Abstract

Continuing developments in photoelectronic detector technology in the last few years have given users the benefit of greatly enhanced performance characteristics. Major improvements have been made in the following key areas: photocathodes, proximity focusing, microchannel plates, phosphor screens, electron bombarded Si diodes and CCDs, image tube intensified SSA cameras, fiberoptic windows and tapers, and photon-counting imaging. Highlights of the improvements in these areas are reviewed, and trends for the future are discussed.
