7 June 2004 Two-phase full-frame CCD with double ITO gate structure for increased sensitivity

In 1999 Kodak introduced the first two-phase, front-illuminated, full-frame CCD in which the electrodes corresponding to one phase were composed of Indium Tin Oxide (ITO), a material more transmissive than poly silicon. In an effort to further increase the sensitivity of front-illuminated image sensors, Kodak has developed an all-ITO electrode CCD. A 1280 x 1024 sensor with 16-mm pixels has been manufactured and characterized. The imaging performance of this device, including its sensitivity, dark current, and charge transfer efficiency, is described. The noise characteristics of the ITO-gated output amplifier MOSFET are also discussed.
