Paper Abstract

CCD detector arrays have potential applications in the field of Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (AES). If used with a cross dispersive polychromator, a two dimensional array offers the possibility of providing fast, simultaneous, multielement analyses. This paper describes the characterization of a 1280 X 1024 pixel CCD with antiblooming structures, together with a flexible camera system. The characteristics are considered with respect to AES. The results presented in this paper cover the aspects of, dark currents, spurious events, CTE at low signal levels, linearity, full-well antiblooming levels. Conclusions are made about the suitability of this CCD detector to the above application.
