Teledyne e2v continues to develop sensors for ground-based and space applications. These are back-thinned for high QE, exhibit low noise, and other high performance specifications. Large sets of such CCDs have been supplied for space missions- including GAIA and EUCLID, with the ESA PLATO program underway. We also highlight a new 2k2k CMOS space imager. Other examples of CMOS sensors for space missions will be shown. High red sensitivity remains important and CCD and CMOS sensors are presented with enhanced red wavelength quantum efficiency. An exciting new capability for back-biased CMOS imagers with significantly enhanced red-sensitivity is presented. It is now possible to supply CMOS sensors with comparable performance to CCDs. Performance information and the final design will be shown for two CMOS sensors- a 2k4k imager and an 800X800 wave-front sensor. Both are back-thinned and have very low readout noise. Finally, we present information on a sub-electron noise CMOS sensor.
