Kawasaki, JapanTHE APPLICATION OF AN overflow drain and barrier positioned beside the photosensitive area' has made it possible to suppress blooming of CCD image sensors. However, this method was found to sacrifice photosensitivity and dynamic range. This paper will describe an interline CCD sensor where the vertical overflow drain is positioned under, rather than beside the photodiode. Thus the cell area can now be used effectively for photoelectron generation and storage, and increased photosensitivity and …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
