Radiation Damage in Charge Coupled Devices

  title={Radiation Damage in Charge Coupled Devices},
  author={David Ryan Smith},
This thesis is concerned with the effects of radiation damage in CCDs used for space applications. The manufacturing process and operational principles of CCDs are presented in Chapter 2. The space radiation environment, the two radiation damage mechanisms relevant to CCDs, and the effects of radiation on the operational characteristics of CCDs are described in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 presents a study to assess the suitability of novel low light level L3Vision CCD technology to applications in… CONTINUE READING
