Paper Abstract

The concept of a new type of CCD-imager is presented that uses both electrons and holes as information carriers. The device contains two separately operating p- and n-type imagers and is called PAN-imager. The p- and n-type pixels are situated in an interdot structure. Furthermore the total number of pixels as well as the number of signal charges is doubled without an increase in area. By this an improvement in resolution, light sensitivity and Moire suppression is obtained. Moreover it yields an improved contour correction. Concept, operation and properties of the PAN-imager are discussed.
