Paper Abstract

Princeton University Observatory has developed an Intensified Charge Coupled Device (ICCD) image tube with a 200 mm diagonal S-20 photocathode and a 100 x 160 pixel Texas Instruments CCD. Measurements of the CCD's response to accelerated photoelectrons have been made with this tube, as well as other configurations. The paper presents the pulse height distribution and point spread function for single photoelectrons of 20 keV energy. These data are discussed in relation to a photon counting image system.
