The European Space Agency Euclid mission aims to answer the question of how the universe originated through the mapping of the dark Universe. One method to investigate this geometry is to measure subtle changes in ellipticity using image sensors such as the charge-coupled device (CCD). However, the radiation environment in space plays a major part in the performance of CCD-based camera systems. When placed in space, a CCD becomes damaged by the radiation environment, and this can lead to a… CONTINUE READING
