22 September 2015 Models for dynamic correlated charge collection effects in thick CCDs
Author Affiliations +
Dynamic charge collection effects in thick CCDs have received interest in recent years, due to the performance implications for both ground and space based precision optical astronomy. The phenomena manifest as the "brighter - fatter" effect in Point Spread Function (PSF) measurements, and nonlinearity and signal dependence in spatial autocorrelation and photon transfer measurements. In this paper we present validation results from simple, analytically based predictive models for this effect, using an e2v CCD250. The model is intended to provide estimations for predicting device performance based on design parameters.
