A high resolution X-ray tv-camera has been developed with CCD-circuits which were covered on the surface with a rare-earth converter screen. The resolution is 25 1p/mm, single photons can be detected for energies >10 keV and the quantum efficiency is 50% at 20 keV. The dynamic range is increased compared with uncovered CCDs. The qualities of CCDs are discussed for sensors with and without conversion layers.
