Paper Abstract

CCDs have been used in spectroscopy for a number of years and for all the obvious reasons. Unfortunately most scientific CCDs are square arrays and are not ideally formatted for spectroscopic applications. This paper discuses the design and fabrication of two CCD arrays specifically intended for use in spectroscopic applications. The devices have 1100 X 330 and 1752 X 532 pixel formats, and are fabricated using the three phase, overlapping polysilicon gate technology and they are available in both front-illuminated as well as back- illuminated versions. In addition, devices with enhanced UV sensitivity are being fabricated. Characterization data are presented. The architecture of these devices leads to some interesting applications which we discuss briefly.
