Paper Abstract

Since the introduction of the CID (Charge Injection Device) sensor by General Electric, there has been steady progress in reducing noise and artifacts as well as improvements in effective video bandwidth. New sensor technology, coupled with camera design techniques which use the advantages of the CID structure, have substantially reduced noise and made possible increased video bandwidth. Cameras with no apparent fixed pattern noise (spatial noise) have been demonstrated -without requiring specially selected sensors. Also, random ("white" or temporal) noise has been reduced to about .1% of saturation current (at a bandwidth of 4.2 MHz). Additionally, a technique has been demonstrated which extends camera bandwidth to 4.2 MHz (± 1 dB) with current technology sensors.
