Paper Abstract

Efforts to improve the state-of-the-art in charge-coupled device (CCD) detector arrays for acoustooptic applications have had considerable success. A program for the improvement of detectors for acoustooptic applications sponsored by Harry Diamond Laboratories in conjunction with Loral Fairchild Imaging Sensors, formerly Fairchild Weston Systems, is aimed at increasing high speed CCD detector dynamic range to over 65 dB. Other device specifications such as crosstalk and image lag are being addressed in order to match the increased dynamic range performance in a 1024 element detector. This paper outlines the key device specifications which needed to be addressed, the methods used to achieve improved performance in these areas, the testing considerations, and the results of recent device testing.
