Abstract
During the past ten years, the microchannel plate has become widely adopted as the preferred photon counting detector for low light level image systems at X-ray, extreme ultra-violet, and far ultraviolet wavelengths, especially in space astronomy applications. Various readout methods have been developed by workers in these areas, including phosphor/video, phosphor and binary-mask encoder, direct discrete position encoder, direct analog amplitude position-encoder systems, and delay line encoders. Salient advantages and limitations of these techniques are discussed in the context of low light level applications in space astronomy.
