Paper Abstract

Development of a 2048-squared CCD for a second-generation Space Telescope instrument has produced some very encouraging devices. The first experimental lot of 10 devices have very few defects, dark currents of less than 40 electrons/pixel/hour at -80 C, readout noise levels of less than 4 electrons rms and excellent charge transfer efficiency at signal levels of less than 10 electrons.
