Paper Abstract

In this paper, a comprehensive model is developed for the scientific CCD camera readout noise. The readout noise can significantly reduce the ability of weak signal detection and ultimately affects the performance of an image processing approach to some extent. The different readout noise sources in scientific CCD camera are well documented, however, there has been little paper on the development of an all-sided readout noise model about the scientific CCD camera. Based on the proposed model, this paper presents a new test method that is present for choosing the standard section by defining criteria of optimality. The proposed method can get the more accurate readout noise than the test method used by experiment and analysis. Besides, the proposed method is fast and simple and therefore can be fitted in the analysis of data and post-image processing, which have very important application in analysis of the CCD camera other performance indicators.
