15 November 1979 Evaluation Of Silicon Diode Arrays For The High-Resolution Spectrograph (HRS) Digicon
Author Affiliations +
Diode arrays fabricated by three companies have been evaluated for use in the HRS Digicon. The goal has been to optimize design and performance in the pulse counting mode. The arrays have been characterized using both photon and electron inputs. Responsivity, optical crosstalk, and a new phenomena "lead response" have been measured as a function of wavelength between 400 and 800 nm. Using pulse height analysis techniques, arrays were characterized with respect to noise and signal-to-noise ratio using low-level electron input. An attempt has been made to establish a correlation between non-intensified (photon input) and intensified (electron input) performance.
