Abstract
The Space Telescope (ST) will carry five astronomical instruments into Earth orbit in late 1983. The performance of each of these instruments is critically dependent on the detectors. The detectors studied during the planning stages for the ST and those to be used in the four US instruments for the first flight are described.
