Paper Abstract

A new CCD sensor technology has been developed by Marconi Applied Technologies which effectively reduces read-out noise to less than one electron rms. A single low light level CCD can operate over a wide range of read-out rates from TV to slow-scan and give superior performance to that available from either intensified or slow-scan CCD sensors.
