Factors such as sensitivity, field of view, and speed help to determine which type of imaging sensor, CCD or CMOS, is best suited for a specific application.

Alan Mullan and Aleks Marsh, Andor Technology

Imaging sensors reveal key details during the exploration of many areas of science, from untangling events at the quantum level and the fundamental processes of the cell to building our understanding of the wider cosmos. Imaging sensor technologies used in these applications can be grouped into two main types: charge-coupled devices, or CCDs — including electron multiplying CCDs — and complementary metal oxide semiconductors, or CMOSs. The amount of space debris continues to increase, posing an ever-increasing hazard to important satellites. Image sensors enable debris to...Read full article
