NEXUS Detectors

We are developing a new generation of high quantum-efficiency, low noise UV photon counting detectors for imaging and multi-object UV spectroscopic missions. The detectors incorporate e2v L3CCDs to enable photon-counting, back thinning and delta-doping to provide reflection-limited UV quantum efficiency, and band-specific anti-reflection coatings to provide QE>50% over the 100-300 nm band.
