Optoelectranic diodes and CCDs in vacuum

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Electrical and optical properties of light-emitting diodes and photodiodes can change significantly in vacuum. These changes involve alterations in forward and reverse current-voltage and capacitance-reverse voltage characteristics, time response, spectral characteristics, quantum efficiency, diode ideality factor, etc. Here, attention is centered on alterations in electrical properties of imaging CCDs in vacuum. Such alterations include increased dark signal, increased responsivity at longer wavelengths in particular, and non-linearity of response.
