18 July 2000 Advanced MOS CCDs for high-throughput x-ray astronomy missions
Author Affiliations +
We present the latest design concepts of CCDs for the next generation of X-ray astronomical applications together with test results of new detector developments for these applications. In particular we consider ways of overcoming the fundamental limitations of these detectors, namely area coverage and low readout speeds. The manufacture of a high yielding, highly efficient CCD with a well understood response at all energies remains a high priority and we discuss our program to achieve this goal. Amongst other features: increased deep depletion and state of the art noise performance will be examined.
