Paper Abstract

The results of some measurements to characterize the performance of various cryogenically cooled CCDs and of a Multi Anode Microchannel Array detector in the Extreme UltraViolet region (EUV) are presented. A performance comparison between the two different types of detector was made: from these measurements some indications can be obtained which say in what conditions and for what applications one detector is preferable to the other. This can have some important implications, for example in choosing a detector for a space mission.
