Abstract
The effective X-ray single photon detector is one of the key technologies for X-ray pulsar detection and navigation. The detector should have good energy and time characteristics and feasibility to meet the needs of X-ray pulsar single photon detection. In this paper, the main kinds of X-ray single photon detectors at present are introduced. By comparing their advantages, disadvantages and usage in satellite, we will give the development trends for the use of X-ray single photon detectors in X-ray pulsar navigation. Finally, we will introduce other new types of X-ray single photon detectors for the future use.
