Paper Abstract

Two competing types of solid state image sensors have been available for some time. CCD imagers have superior low noise, low light level performance, but have relatively poor spectral response characteristics. Self scanned photodiode array (SSPD) imagers can be produced with near ideal silicon spectral response, but have higher readout noise. A new optimized structure, the charge coupled photodiode array (CCPD) imager is described which combines photodiode sensors with CCD readout to provide low light level capability along with ' smooth spectral response and high quantum efficiency.
