Paper Abstract

A prototype optical image intensifier is coupled to a phosphor-coated fibre optic to provide an imaging soft X-ray detector. We show that high quantum efficiency is combined with high position resolution and some energy resolution. We estimate the dark current and particle background rejection factors of this detector and discuss its suitability for space applications such as X-ray astronomy.
