Paper Abstract

An electron-bombarded Charge Coupled Device (EBCCD), when used with an external ultraviolet sensitive cathode, can be used as photon-counting UV detector with high quantum efficiency and wide dynamic range. We report on results obtained with the Texas Instruments VP1M 1024x1024 (18 micron square pixel) virtual phase CCD used with an electromagnetically focussed f/2 Schmidt camera. Excellent single photoevent discrimination and counting efficiency has been achieved with this device.
