Paper Abstract

One important class of cosmic ray instrumentation utilizes a ruggedized photon-counting microchannel plate image intensifier tube in the prime detector assembly. This type of detector provides the necessary hodoscope imaging, utilizing scintillating optical fibers coupled to the image intensifier tube, as well as serving as a preamplifier for photodiodes that trigger event readouts. Image information in the active area of the image converter tube is read-out by a CCD camera which is fiberoptically coupled to it. This design is capable of providing position resolution to better than 130 micrometers.
