Abstract

Most present day Charge Coupled Devices (CCD) have a charge injection input for testing the CCD. If both the CCD charge injection input and the photodiode inputs are used simultaneously, the charges will add and the output of the CCD will be the. sum of the charge representing the photodiode input and the charge injection input. Two uses for this property of the CCD are'envisioned.
