Author Affiliations +
In this paper, we present an overview of large area detector arrays and new sensor technologies currently under development at Fairchild Imaging. We discuss on-going development efforts aimed at satisfying the increasing need for large format, scientific grade detectors, and review significant progress in achieving higher spatial resolution in large area back-illuminated CCDs. We also present the performance characteristics of a new prototype CCD/CMOS hybrid sensor designed for low light level imaging and capable of high speed, low power, and very low noise.
