Abstract

The demand from the astronomical community for high resolution low noise CCDs has led to the development of the STA1600LN, a 10560 × 10560 pixel, 95mm × 95mm, full-frame CCD imager with 9×9 μ2 pixels. The device improvements include noise reduction to below 3e- at 100kHz, improved quantum efficiency, as well as packaging developments for improved fill factor in mosaic systems. We provide test results from production devices, along with updates on scientific systems utilizing the STA1600 for astronomy.
