Paper Abstract

A versatile high performance Frame Transfer and Storage imaging device has been demonstrated using tin oxide gates and Open Pinned Phase (OPP) technology. The device consists of a 512 X 512 imaging array and integral 512 X 512 frame buffer. The detector size is 18 micrometers X 18 micrometers , however, pixel size is electronically controllable by detector aggregation in the X and Y directions. The use of tin oxide gates and OPP technology provide a front side illuminated device with high Quantum Efficiency and low leakage. This combination of features yields a mechanically robust high resolution imager, ideally suited for military, scientific, and commercial applications requiring high sensitivity and/or long stare times.
