Abstract
This paper describes the performance of an advanced high- resolution full-frame architecture CCD imaging device for use in scientific, medical, and other high performance monochromatic digital still imaging applications. Of particular interest is the replacement of the polysilicon second gate electrode with that of a more spectrally transparent material, thereby dramatically improving device sensitivity. This has been achieved without compromising performance in other areas such as dark current, noise, transfer efficiency and, most importantly, yield. Devices have also been produced with and without antiblooming protection depending on an application's primary need for sensitivity or control of over-exposure conditions.
