Charge coupled device (CCD) image sensors

M. Lesser,    University of Arizona, USA

Abstract:

Charge coupled devices (CCDs) have been the most common high performance imaging detector for nearly all scientific and industrial imaging applications since the 1980s. In this chapter the CCD imager and its use for high performance imaging are described. The focus is on scientific and industrial applications which require quantitative measurements of the incident scene, especially in low light level conditions and when spectral information is also required. The architecture and operation of CCDs as well as their quantitative characterization and most important operational parameters are also described.
