Paper Abstract

Large area CCDs are not in general flat. Deviations from flatness are often greater than that allowed for the focal plane of moderately fast optical systems. We will discuss a technique of vacuum packaging that has allowed CCDs to be packaged with a flatness of better than five microns over a scale of greater than three centimeters. In principle this technique could be used to package a CCD so that the surface has a specific radius of curvature rather than a planar figure (infinite radius). 1.
