Author Affiliations +
A full frame, four million pixel CCD area array has been developed for high performance applications. The device consists of 2048(H) by 2048(V) active elements with four outputs, and is fabricated using a triple poly, buried n-channel CCD process. Design features which enhance array performance include a Multi-Pinned Phase (MPP) pixel design for reduced dark current, low noise output amplifiers, and a phosphor coating to extent the spectral response. Excellent performance is demonstrated with a dynamic range of 93 dB, a read noise of 2.5 electrons (r.m.s.) and dark current of 20 pA cm-2 (25 degree(s)C).
