Paper Abstract

Solar blind UV intensified CCD (ICCD) has been widely applied in solar blind UV detection by the advantages of imaging, high sensitivity, photon counting, fast speed of response, large dynamic range, low cost, mature technology and so on. Solar blind UV ICCD consists of UV optical aperture with UV filter, photocathode, micro-channel plate (MCP), phosphor, optical coupling and CCD. The study of solar blind ICCD detection performance starts from the target imaging characteristic. Then the expression of ICCD output SNR is obtained based on the analysis of distributing the image intensifier noise and CCD noise. The detection probability and false alarm probability are expressed by the normal distribution, which are depended on the ICCD output SNR and threshold SNR. A new ICCD detection range model is developed that takes into account ICCD output SNR, threshold SNR, detection probability and false alarm. In according to the study of detection performance, the solution of improving the ICCD detection performance is given.
