Paper Abstract

A solid-state camera system designed for use as a multichannel detection system for spectroscopic applications is evaluated. The camera is based on a charge-injection-device sensor that permits very high dynamic range operation by virtue of its unique nondestructive readout capability. Methods of determining gain and readout noise are discussed. Performance of the camera system is evaluated with respect to sensitivity, linearity, readout noise, and dynamic range. The use of nondestructive readout to reduce effective readout noise and increase dynamic range is described. Spectral responses in the visible and ultraviolet of coronene-coated and uncoated devices are reported. Various time-dependent anomalies caused by interface trapped charge are discussed.
