Paper Abstract

Scintillating fibers enable the experimentalist to gather time and energy information on particles entering a large array of fibers. The ideal detector therefore has a large input size, and should be capable of handling as many scintillating fibers as possible. This paper outlines the latest developments in photon counting tubes and camera systems. Developments include ruggedized intensifiers for space applications of fiber scintillators, and systems with improved pixel capacity. Centroiding intensified CCD systems are capable of resolving more than 4 million pixels, but with time resolution no better than a TV frame period. At the other end of the time/resolution spectrum, we have developed multi anode photomultipliers with 96 pixels, and subnanosecond time resolution.
