Paper Abstract

A 128 x 128 element CID imager was operated in a simulated stellar tracking environment and ev8luated f8r temporal and pattern noise and spectral response over a temperature range of -40oC to +25oC. The test devices were fabricated on long-lifetime bulk silicon material and utilized very thin upper-level polysilicon electrodes for enhanced spectral response. A standard microcomputer was used to generate all control signals and to collect and process performance data. The results of this program were used to predict the performance of a 400 x 400 CID array designed specifically for stellar-tracking.
