Paper Abstract

The performance of a large format (512 X 512, 20.3 mm diagonal) Charge Injection Device (CID) imager which was fabricated for use in spectroscopy, microscopy and other scientific instrumentation applications is reported herein. The device incorporates a large (28 X 28 micron) pixel size and on-chip signal amplification to achieve large full well capacity, low noise and wide dynamic range. As do other CIDs', the device also features a broad spectral response, virtually no blooming, true Non-Destructive Signal Read-Out (NDRO), video skimming and individual pixel address capability. Together, these unique CID features provide the capability to extend the imager dynamic range, achieve real-time signal monitoring and read-out for adaptive exposure control, and achieve lower noise through NDRO signal averaging.
