Abstract
We have developed compact microchannel plate detectors utilizing a cross delay line readout system for the IMAGE- FUV Spectrographic Imager. We present a description of the detector head assembly and performance data typical for both detectors. Both detectors are nearly identical, the only different being the position of the input window on the front cover. Each detector, optimized for operation in the far UV with a KBr photocathode, provides high spatial resolution and good linearity over a 20 mm square format.
