Optical Photon Counting Imaging Detectors with Nanosecond Time Resolution for Astronomy and Night Time Sensing

Abstract

Microchannel plate photon counting, imaging sensors with cross strip readouts having 18 mm active area format in sealed tube (optical sensing) configurations have been constructed. These have been tested with custom high-speed field programmable gate array based electronics for single event position and time encoding. The Super-GenII photocathodes used have… (More)
