We present measurements of spectral sensitivity of CCD-matrices designed for future space missions. Three wavebands were under investigation: UV-visible range (300-600 nm), UV (250-300 nm) and VUV (110-250 nm). We used a halogen lamp, a deuterium lamp and a tungsten laser-driven plasma as sources of radiation. IRD UV silicon photodiodes and a photomultiplier tube fulfilled the function of calibrated detectors. Using a calibrated CCD, we measured initial spectral effectivity of the tungsten laser-driven plasma radiation source in the 110-250 nm waveband. Afterwards we experimentally evaluated spectral transmittance functions of three VUV multilayer filters for future space telescopes.
