Paper Abstract

The concept of fully depleted, backside illuminated pn-CCD's with an integrated frame store area for high-speed applications will be presented. The device with a format of 128 by 256 pixel exhibits a readout time faster than 1000 frames per second with an electronic noise of less than 5 electrons. Due to the large sensitive volume of the detector and the development of an ultra-thin radiation entrance window, near theoretical quantum efficiencies are achieved from the ultra violet to the near infrared region. The high speed, low noise and high quantum efficiency makes these devices especially suited for the use as wavefront sensors in adaptive optics systems.
