Paper Abstract

We report work in progress in a development programme to produce a high gain photon event counting image intensifier intended for use as the primary detector in an image photon counting system for use on large telescopes. The intensifier uses two microchannel plates in the 'chevron' configuration with proximity focusing for electron image transfer.
