Abstract

New concepts for operating charge coupled devices (CCD's) in a multiple frame transfer mode which allow very high speed imaging of transient phenomena are described. These methods coupled with the inherent advantages of slow scan readout, including high dynamic range, low noise and excellent linearity, provide unique, new observational capabilities. Appropriate masking techniques allow a large portion of the CCD to be employed as a high speed image buffer. Applications include spatial imaging of rapidly moving objects, observations of transient spectral chemical phenomena and the study of rapid physiological motion.
