First tests of the PEPSI 10k dewar vessel with a mechanical sample of the STA1600D device in the AIP detector lab.
Preliminary design for 10kx10k CCD dewar.
Quantum efficiency curve for the blue arm CCD (383-569nm).
The CCD camera unit consists of the following parts:
2 science cameras each with a back-illuminated thinned 10.3kx10.3k STA1600D CCD.
STA1600D specifications: polycrystalline silicon gates, 10580x10560 pixels, 9 micrometer size, 95x95 mm imaging area, 100% fill factor, 16 10-MHz amplifiers, full-, half- & quarter-frame transfer option, 3-phase image area & readout registers. First wafer run successful at DALSA (03-06/2006). Thinning at ITL in 2008 and 2009.
