Paper Abstract

A series of small rapid-framing CCD designs have been designed, fabricated, and tested for use as adaptive optics sensors for laser guide star image correction. To reduce video bandwidth and thus minimize readout noise, these CCD's employ 16 output amplifiers. Designs with 2 different formats (64 X 64 and 128 X 128) and with three different output amplifiers structures have been produced.
