Abstract
The Electro-Optics Laboratory of the Institute for Space and Terrestrial Science characterizes array detectors under a wide range of operating conditions in a test facility based on a uniform optical source, a flexible array controller, a cryostat, and comprehensive and data acquisition hardware and software. Source characteristics, ambient temperature, clock/bias parameters, and output signal conditioning can be varied to maximize the useful information about the devices under test. Emphasis has been placed on achieving a high level of accuracy and reproducibility in the measurements. Results from representative CCD arrays are used to illustrate design highlights and facility capabilities.
