This paper describes the development of backside illuminated, deep-depletion charge coupled devices (CCD's) optimized for imaging in the ultraviolet. A model is presented to describe the UV detection process at the CCD backside, and the factors controlling the UV quantum efficiency. A 32 x 32-pixel area imager was obtained with excellent operating characteristics, such as high transport efficiency and low readout rwise. By appropriate treatments of the CCD backside, a quantum efficiency of 20% at 1216 Å was obtained on the best devices. Good resolution was obtained in the visible and UV regions of the spectrum.
