Author Affiliations +
This paper discusses recent progress in the understanding of the fabrication of low noise floating diffusion output amplifiers for special purpose charge-coupled devices. Emphasis has been given to reducing the total node capacitance and increasing the output sensitivity. Measurements of noise on experimental devices has yielded noise less than 3 electrons rms at 50 kpixel data rate.
