Paper Abstract

The High Resolution Camera (HRC) is one of four instruments selected to fly on the NASA Advanced X-Ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF) [1]. The HRC is designed to detect single X-ray photon events in the soft X-ray energy range from 0.1 to 10. KeV. The measured spatial resolution (FWHM) is 25 pm over a 100 cm2 detecting area. This paper investigates the accuracy and limitations of the position algorithm used with the coarse/fine resistive wire readout system.
