Paper Abstract

Television sensors such as CCD's and vidicons can be coupled to convertors and (typically) image intensifiers to obtain active areas, high flux capabilities, quantum efficiency, high time resolution, or ease of construction and operation that may not be obtained with a directly illuminated sensor in the X-ray and XUV range. A general purpose system which makes use of these capabilities for a number of applications is described. Some of the capabilities and properties of this type of system are discussed, as are some of the considerations that should be kept in mind when configuring a system of this type.
