1 November 1990 Two-dimensional delay-line anode detector for astronomical imaging
Author Affiliations +
Progress is reported in the development and testing of a microchannel-plate anode detector for a satellite-based all-sky survey in the FUV. A preliminary FWHM-resolution value of 6- microns and a linearity of 15 microns have been achieved. Optimization of the electronics should improve the resolution by a factor of four and improve the linearity to 10 microns over the entire field. It should be possible to increase the detector format to hundreds of sq cm with no degradation of resolution or increase in complexity.
