Paper Abstract

The development of the 20482 CCD for a second generation Space Telescope instrument has resulted devices with very few defects dark currents of less than 12 electrons/pixel/hour at 80 readout noise levels of less than 4 electrons rms and excellent charge transfer efficiency at signal levels of less than 10 electrons. A second generation of devices that capitalize on these characteristics have been produced and are currently in test. Faster frame transfer devices that preserve these characteristics have been designed that include tn-directional taps in the serial register. 1.
