What is claimed is:

1. A flame detector, comprising:

a spacer having a spacer wall extending along a first axis between a first spacer end and a second spacer end;

a UV transparent window disposed at the first spacer end;

the spacer wall and the UV transparent window defining a gas space; and

UV sensing elements disposed within the gas space.

2. The flame detector of claim 1, wherein the UV sensing elements includes: a partially transmissive material disposed on a surface of the UV transparent window; and

a cathode disposed within the gas space and extended at least partially into the spacer wall.

3. The flame detector of claim 1, further comprising:

a second UV transparent window disposed at the second spacer end.

4. The flame detector of claim 3, wherein the UV sensing elements includes: an anode disposed within the gas space, proximate the UV transparent window, and extended at least partially into the spacer wall; and

a partially transmissive material disposed on a surface of the second UV transparent window.

5. The flame detector of claim 1, wherein the UV sensing elements includes: an anode having a perforated feature disposed within the gas space; and

a cathode disposed within the gas space and spaced apart from the perforated feature.

6. The flame detector of claim 5, wherein the cathode includes an extension that extends towards the perforated feature.

7. The flame detector of claim 6, wherein the extension defines perforations that are offset from and misaligned with the perforated feature of the anode.

8. A flame detector, comprising:

a spacer having a spacer wall disposed about a gas space, the spacer wall extending along a first axis between a first spacer end and a second spacer end, the spacer wall defining a recess that extends from the first spacer end towards the second spacer end;

a UV transparent window disposed within the recess; and

a UV sensing elements disposed within the gas space.

9. The flame detector of claim 8, wherein the UV sensing elements includes:

an anode disposed within the gas space and extending into a first gap defined by the spacer wall;

a cathode disposed within the gas space and spaced apart from the anode, the cathode extends into a second gap defined by the spacer wall; and

a gas mixture within the gas space, the gas mixture being arranged to enable a gas electron multiplier effect.

10. The flame detector of claim 9, wherein at least one of the anode and the cathode defines a plurality of perforations.

11. The flame detector of claim 9, wherein the UV sensing elements includes a partially transmissive material disposed on a surface of UV transparent window.

12. The flame detector of claim 11, further comprising a second UV transparent window disposed at the second spacer end.

13. The flame detector of claim 12, wherein the UV sensing elements includes a second partially transmissive material is disposed on a surface of the second UV transparent window.

14. The flame detector of claim 8, wherein the recess includes a first surface that is disposed parallel to the first axis and a second surface that extends from the first surface and is disposed perpendicular to the first axis.

15. The flame detector of claim 14, wherein the second surface extends from an inner surface towards an outer surface.

16. The flame detector of claim 15, wherein the UV transparent window includes a pair of window surfaces and a circumferential surface that extends between the pair of window surfaces.

17. The flame detector of claim 16, wherein at least one of the pair of window surfaces of the UV transparent window engages the second surface.

18. The flame detector of claim 8, wherein a first patterned metal anode is disposed on a surface of the UV transparent window.

19. The flame detector of claim 18, further comprising:

a second UV transparent window disposed at the second spacer end; and

a second patterned metal anode disposed on a surface of the second UV transparent window.

20. The flame detector of claim 19, further comprising a central plate disposed within the gas space and disposed between the UV transparent window and the second UV transparent window.

21. A method of manufacturing a flame detector, comprising:

applying a first joining material to at least one of a surface of a UV transparent window and a surface of a spacer;

applying a second joining material to gaps within a wall of the spacer;

disposing a UV transparent window proximate an end surface of the spacer; and inserting ends of at least one of an anode and cathode of UV sensing elements into the gaps.

22. The method of claim 21, further comprising:

cleaning the anode and the cathode.

23. The method of claim 21, further comprising:

heating the first joining material to a first temperature within a vacuum process chamber to join the UV transparent window to the end surface of the spacer; and

heating the second joining material to a second temperature within the vacuum process chamber to join at least one of the anode and cathode of the UV sensing elements to the spacer, wherein the second temperature is different from the first temperature.

24. The method of claim 23, further comprising:

cleaning the partially assembled flame detector within the vacuum process chamber.

25. The method of claim 23, further comprising:

filling a gas space within the spacer with a gas composition.

26. The method of claim 25, further comprising:

applying at least one of the first joining material and the second joining material to a second end surface of the spacer disposed opposite the end surface;

disposing a second UV transparent window on at least one of the first joining material and the second joining material; and

heating at least one of the first joining material and the second joining material within the vacuum process chamber to join the second UV transparent window to the second end surface of the spacer.
