11 February 2003 CCD cameras for the polarimetric channels of HERSCHEL
Author Affiliations +
A new concept CCD camera is currently under development at the XUVLab of the Department of Astronomy and Space Science of the University of Florence. This CCD camera is the proposed detector for the broadband visible light polarimetric channels of the UVCI coronagraph of HERSCHEL and of Solar Orbiter space missions. The main features of this camera are a high level of versatility and a fast pixel that will satisfy the requirements of both the space missions. Within this project, a versatile CCD controller has been produced with interesting and innovative features: it allows the selection of all the parameters related to charge transfer and CCD readout and therefore it allows the use of virtually any CCD sensor. The software interface is LabVIEW 6i based and it will allow both local and remote control and display.
