27 November 1989 A 1024 X 1024 CCD For Scientific Applications
Author Affiliations +
In order to satisfy the increasing interest in the large format scientific grade CCD with high resolution capability, a full frame 1024 x 1024 four phase CCD has been designed, fabricated and tested. The devices show a 5 electrons noise at - 100°C and very good transfer efficiency. A four quadrant organization with four video outputs allows a 20 ms minimum readout time. Performances at room temperature and low temperature will be presented. Plan for future enhancements -back side illumination and high resistivity silicon substrate- will be discussed.
