Abstract

The properties and application of a UV downconverting phosphor (coronene) to silicon charge coupled devices are discussed. Measurements of the absorption spectrum have been extended to below 1000 Å, and preliminary results indicate the existence of useful response to at least 584 Å. The average conversion efficiency of coronene was measured to be ~20% at 2537 Å. Imagery at 3650 Å using a backside illuminated 800 × 800 CCD coated with coronene is presented.
