  3. 3. Introduction • A Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is a highly sensitive photon detector. • CCDs are dynamic devices that move charge along a predetermined paths under control of clock pulses.
  4. 4. How CCD is clocked out?
  5. 5. • The upper section shows charge being collected under one of the electrodes. To transfer the charge out of the CCD, a new potential well can be created by holding IØ3 high, the charge is now shared between IØ2 and IØ3 (section 2). • If IØ2 is now taken low, the charge will be fully transferred under electrode IØ3 (section 3). • To continue clocking out the CCD, taking IØ1 high and then taking IØ3 low will ensure that the charge cloud now drifts across under the IØ1 electrodes. • As this process is continued, the charge cloud will progress either down the column, or across the row, depending upon the orientation of the electrodes.
  6. 6. Image Scanning CCDs can be used to collect an image in one of three ways, either one pixel at a time, one row at a time, or as an entire area at once.
  7. 7. Image Generation
  8. 8. Final Procedure • The final process on the CCD is the reading of each pixel so that the size of the associated charge cloud can be measured. • The CCD is an analogue device, and the analogue voltage values are converted into a digital form by the camera electronics.
