The evolution of the Sprite detector from its invention in 1974 to the present is reviewed. The use of anamorphic optics to reduce the effects of carrier diffusion, together with changes to the device shape has produced very high spatial resolution. Improved material and two-dimensional structures have further increased the thermal sensitivity. A brief description of the technology for two-dimensional, electronically addressed diode arrays is also given, together with a discussion of the mechanism of p to n type conversion.
