State-of-the-art imaging arrays and their applications. Conference held at San Diego, Calif., USA, 21 - 23 August 1984.
Visible and X-ray imaging arrays are considered, taking into account the future scientific CCD, high sensitivity charge-coupled device (CCD) imagers for television, an analysis of the vertical charge transfer efficiency of a 'line transfer' color image sensor, techniques for operating CCDs in very high speed framing mode, a wide dynamic range CCD camera, recent innovations in CID (Charge Injection Device) cameras, and the design and development of a 1024x1024 visible imager. Other topics explored are related to infrared imaging arrays, techniques for array testing and characterization, new applications and instruments, and imaging arrays in astronomy. Attention is given to the advent of three-dimensional imaging array architectures, a television compatible portable IR-CCD camera system, a method for measuring the modulation transfer function of CCDs using laser speckle, an expedient approach to focal plane testing, a CCD-based parallel analog processor, integrated detector array technology for infrared astronomy, and a star mapper using a linear CCD array.
