Line: 26 to 26
 
  • CCD Detector Image Generation Steps[1]
    1. Charge Generation (Photoelectric Effect)
    2. Charge Collection (Photoelectrons collected via collection sites, collections sites are defined by electrode arrays formed on the CCD these are called gates)
Changed:
<
<
    1. Charge Transfer (Voltage manipulation of gates so that electrons move down vertical registers one pixel at a time)
    2. Charge Detection
>
>
    1. Charge Transfer (Voltage manipulation of gates so that electrons move down vertical & horizontal registers one pixel at a time, the register transports packets to the on-chip amplifier)
    2. Charge Detection (Charge packets are converted to a voltage, this can be digitially encoded and thus an image can be formed)
