The effects of Co/sup 60/ gamma radiation on electron multiplying charge-coupled devices

Abstract

Electron multiplying charge coupled devices (EMCCDs) utilize impact ionization to achieve subelectron noise up to video frame rates and above. This paper describes the effects of Co/sup 60/ irradiation on device performance parameters including the dark signal, charge transfer and multiplication gain. Devices were irradiated with different ionizing doses… (More)
