1 June 1992 Performance factors for intensified-CCD systems
Author Affiliations +
A variety of applications require coupling of vacuum tube intensifiers to CCD cameras, in a variety of configurations. Commercial and laboratory systems now being developed continue to expand the performance limits of such electro-optic hybrid systems. We review the state of the art in both CCD and intensifier technology, and present some test data on the most common practical configuration''s resolution and dynamic range. The merits of Gen I intensifiers coupled to cooled CCDs are discussed, and comparisons are made between the two most likely hybrid system configurations. Significant future performance gains appear possible in developmental systems.
