Paper Abstract

A brief description is given of a CCD camera facility which has been designed and built for testing and characterization of CCDs in response to single X-ray photons of energy ~ 1 - 10 keV. The camera system facilitates ease of change from one type of CCD to another. Results are described from the frontside illuminated Fairchild 211 and 221 area imagers, and the disadvantages of commercially available devices are discussed. Preliminary results are presented. from (100 x 200) CCD arrays manufactured under contract by Westinghouse on high-resistivity silicon for deep depletion.
