Paper Abstract

Charge Injection Devices (CIDs) have historically played a niche role in visible imager technologies, mainly for applications requiring high radiation tolerance. They have not exhibited the radiometric performance of competing visible- imaging technologies such as CCDs, and so have not been widely applied to space instrument systems. Recent advances in CIDs have demonstrated much higher radiometric performance as well as lower noise operation, without compromising the radiation tolerance of the devices, making the devices suitable for a wide range of space instruments. We present radiometric, noise, and radiation response data for several of the newest CID designs that are candidate technologies for visible space telescope systems.
