Paper Abstract

Hybrid focal plane devices with photovoltaic detectors mated to charge-coupled device (CCD) multiplexers are finding applications in an increasing variety of staring and scanning sensor systems. This paper presents analytical models for the modulation transfer runction (MTF) and the noise in a sensor system which uses hybrid focal plane devices. The MTF model treats principal sources of MTF degradation within the detector chip, the CCD, and signal processing. The noise model treats fifteen noise sources within the detector and CCD, and also accounts for noise generated in the signal processing chain. Both models are applicable for either staring or scanning sensor systems. Limitations of the models are discussed.
