Abstract
The RCA 512 x 320 pixel buried channel CCD has been employed in a number of astronomical observations ii the past year and the astronomical results are presented in several companion papers. This paper reports on recent laboratory evaluation of an experimental version of this CCD which has a lower input capacitance on-chip amplifier. The data presented includes readout noise measured in several ways, charge transfer efficiency as a function of signal level, and dark current as a function of temperature. The response of the RCA buried channel CCD to single energetic electrons and soft X-rays is also presented.
