Charge-coupled devices (CCDs) are sensors for recording images in digital cameras. These devices consist of an integrated circuit containing an array of linked or coupled capacitors acting as many small pixels. The falling of light on a pixel is converted into a charge pulse, which is then measured by the CCD electronics and represented by a number. The number usually ranges from 0 (no light) to 65,535 (very intense light). Each CCD chip is composed of an array of metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) capacitors and each capacitor is a pixel. When electrical charges are applied to the CCD top plates, they can be stored within the structure of chips. Digital pulses are applied to the top plates which can shift these charges among the pixels creating a picture representing charged pixels. These photoelectronic image sensors have made digital photography possible and revolutionized astronomy, space science, and consumer electronics. The CCD is a crucial component of fax machines, digital cameras, and scanners.
CCDs have various applications and is used in digital cameras, optical scanners, and video cameras as light-sensing devices. CCD cameras are mostly used in astrophotography and are typically sensitive to infrared light, which allows infrared photography, night-vision devices, and zero lux (or near zero lux) video-recording/photography. CCDs are used to record the exposures of galaxies and nebulae. They commonly respond to 70% of the incident light (meaning a quantum efficiency of about 70%) making them more efficient than photographic film, which captures only about 2% of the incident light. As a result, the CCDs were being rapidly adopted by the astronomers. This report covers the entire spectrum of CCDs, which are used in various applications such as consumer electronics, automotive, medical, industrial, security and surveillance.
