20 May 1993 Large area CCD/fiber optic imager assembly
Author Affiliations +
The mechanical components and assembly of a quad-CCD/fiber optic mosaic will be discussed. The camera has an effective image area approximately four inches square, with a cross shaped gap in the center of less than 100 microns. The sensor array consists of four Tektronix TK2048EF CCDs with 1:1 fiber optics attached. The image ends of the fiber are butted together to form a contiguous imaging area. The image area is greater than 4000 X 4000 picture elements (16 million pixels).
