Abstract
The 40 CCDs produced at Marconi Applied Technologies are dispatched at CEA to be tested and characterized before being inserted into the MegaCam camera mosaic. We describe here briefly our CCD test bench, the measurements we perform with it and the results obtained so far. A model has also been developed to interpret the quantum efficiency results.
