Abstract
The space telescope imaging spectrograph (STIS) is currently being developed for in-orbit installation onto the Hubble Space Telescope in 1997, where it will cover the wavelength range from 115 to 1000 nm in a variety of spectroscopic and imaging modes. For coverage of the 305 - 1000 nm region (and backup of the 165 - 305 nm) region, STIS will employ a custom CCD detector which has been developed at Scientific Imaging Technologies (SITe; formerly Tektronix CCD Products Group). This backside-illuminated device incorporates a proprietary SITe backside treatment and anti-reflective coating to extend the useful quantum efficiency shortward of 200 nm. It also features low noise amplifiers, multi-pinned-phase implants, mini-channel implants, and four quadrant readout. The CCD is thermo-electrically cooled to an operating temperature of -80 degree(s)C within a sealed, evacuated housing with its exterior at room temperature to minimize the condensation of absorbing contaminants in orbit. It is coupled to a set of low noise, flexible, fault-tolerant electronics. Both housing and electronics are being developed by the STIS prime contractor, Ball Aerospace & Communications Group. We describe here the design features, performance, and fabrication status of the STIS CCD and its associated subsystem, along with results of radiation testing.
