When choosing or designing a detector for a particular application, a complete understanding of the expected response is vital. Parameters such as quantum efficiency, spatial resolution, signal-to-noise ratio, count rate capability and spectral resolution all play a part in the suitability of a detector. These parameters are not necessarily independent, and in many cases an improvement in one parameter can only be achieved with deterioration of another.
