22 October 1999 In-situ measurement of the channel stop structure in AXAF CCDs
Author Affiliations +
We present results from recent measurements of the channel stop structures in AXAF CCDs. We discuss refinements of a technique that uses a thin metal film with small, periodically spaced holes to restrict incident photons to well-defined regions of the pixel, providing a way to probe sub-pixel structure. By making monochromatic measurements at different energies, we can reliably determine the width and thickness of the channel stop pPLU-type silicon implant and its insulating oxide layer.
