Paper Abstract

One of the methods of enhancing the blue and UV sensitivity of a silicon array is the Viehmann technique of coating it with a thin plastic film which has been made fluorescent by the addition of one or more laser dyes. This report describes the preparation of such films and the performance characteristics of cooled silicon CIDs coated with them.
