Paper Abstract

An empirical approach is presented for modeling the performance of a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera. The model described in this paper incorporates experimental results from laboratory camera characterization tests and considers image corruption due to CCD detector array phenomena such as filling inefficiency, blooming, and charge transfer inefficiency. The method treats high-resolution, simulated input images that are generated using a physical, wave-optics code. These generated optical images are input to the CCD model. The resulting camera model predictions agree favorably with experimental images recorded using the actual CCD camera system.
