Abstract
Two systems based on charge-coupled device (CCD) arrays have been designed and tested for image detection at vacuum ultraviolet wavelengths. A camera using a CCD in conjunction with a microchannel plate image intensifier was developed and qualified for space flight. A second camera system uses a thinned, back-illuminated CCD for direct detection of extreme ultraviolet radiation. A space qualified version of this camera is currently under development. Both systems produce images of excellent quality, with very high photometric sensitivity.
