transfer characteristic, thereby increasing the dynamic range to more than 85dB. This inexpensive detector features a variable array length, compact drive electronics housed in a customized module, low-light level performance, a low dark current, and can operate at a data rate of up to 20 MHz. A commercially available linear sensor array has been operated in an unconventional way to achieve a compressive transfer characteristic, thereby increasing the dynamic range to more than 85 dB. This inexpensive detector features a variable
