Paper Abstract

This paper traces the developments of the SPRITE detector from its invention in 1974 to the present day. Thermal sensitivity has been enhanced by improvements in material and the introduction of two dimensional arrays. Spatial resolution has been improved both by changes in device shape and by the introduction of anamorphic optics to reduce the effects of carrier diffusion.
