Paper Abstract

We have tested samples of two GEC charge coupled devices with enhanced x-ray performance. The P8607, fabricated with reduced linear dimensions, gives the lowest detector noise reported for Fe-55 with a CCD. The deep depletion device P8600-HR gives the best combination of energy resolution and quantum efficiency at 6 keV. We discuss the energy resolution vs quantum efficiency trade-off curve.
