The paper presents the use of deep level transient spectroscopy to characterize trapping centers in CCD imagers. A discussion is presented regarding the effects of UV illumination and elevated temperature annealing in a hydrogen-rich environment. Two trapping centers are described, and the annealing experiments suggest techniques for extending CCD lifetimes.
