Paper Abstract

A physical model is used to describe the image modulation and noise characteristics of charge-coupled device (CCD) imagers. The model includes the effects of photon absorption, charge generation and collection, and signal quantization. The imaging characteristics are presented in terms of the MTF and Wiener, or noise power, spectrum. A computed example illustrates the use of the model.
