Paper Abstract

We have built and tested a soft X-ray/XUV imaging camera that uses a thinned, back-illuminated, all-buried channel RCA CCD for radiation sensing. The camera is a slow-scan device which allows frame integration if necessary. The detection characterics of the device have been tested over the 15-1500 eV range. The response was linear with exposure up to ~0.2-0.4 erg/cm2; saturation occurred for greater exposures. Attempts to resolve single photons with energies of 1.5 keV are described.
