Radiation Tolerances: Effects on CID Imaging Devices

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

The charge-injection device (CID) is a broadband (200 to 1100 nm) charge-transfer device (CTD) image sensor with capabilities well beyond the limitations of typical commercially available charge-coupled devices (CCDs), CMOS, and active pixel sensors.

Tony Chapman, Thermo Fisher Scientific, CIDTEC Cameras & Imagers

Like other CTDs, the CID imager uses hundreds of thousands (up to 4 million) pixel elements to capture optical images, and converts the light into an electronic charge which may be displayed on a monitor, or captured and processed by a computer. Unlike other CTDs, the CID imager architecture may be configured as a radiation hardened device that can reliably operate in a wide range of radiation environments well beyond the typical lifetime of CCD or CMOS-based cameras (in some cases orders of magnitude). Or the CID may be configured as a RACID (random access CID) device which is capable...Read full article
