Paper Abstract

Recent developments with detector systems for use at vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) and soft x-ray wavelengths have emphasized improvements in the detective quantum efficiencies and the capability for high-resolution imaging while retaining a high photometric accuracy. This paper compares and contrasts the performance characteristics of the three principal classes of imaging detector systems currently under active development, namely, the bare Charge-Coupled Device (CCD), the intensified CCD, and the microchannel plate (MCP) coupled to different imaging electronic readout systems.
