Teledyne e2v marks this anniversary with a series of publications and highlights how the future is bright for CCDs in space, science and other demanding applications.

 

CHELMSFORD, UK – Media OutReach – 26 February
2020 – From October 2019 through to January 2020 marks the 50th anniversary
of the CCD, a device that has transformed the understanding of physics, life
sciences, the Earth, our solar system and beyond, and enriched our lives
through digital photography.

Willard Boyle and George E. Smith invented the
charge-coupled device (CCD) in 1969 in the United States at AT&T Bell Labs.
In 1970, Boyle and Smith submitted a paper on their invention of the CCD to the
Bell System Technical Journal. Their original ideas for the CCD were to create
a memory device. However, with the publication of Boyle and Smith’s research in
1970, other scientists began experimenting with the technology on a range of
applications. Astronomers discovered that they could produce high-resolution
images of distant objects because CCDs offered a photosensitivity one hundred
times greater than film.

“The major thing is the quantum efficiency. You can get
close to 80 percent quantum efficiency in a CCD,” George E. Smith would later
explain.

Teledyne e2v will be marking the anniversary with the
production and creation of a unique badge design, holding an event for its
staff who have worked tirelessly on the development of the worlds most advanced
CCD designs and a series of short publications:

Telescope (VST).

Dr Miles Adcock said: “It is incredible to think
how the invention of the CCD 50-years ago would lead to not only a
multi-billion dollar a year imaging industry but also that it enabled the
understanding of the life-sciences we have today and the discovery of distant
worlds.”

Teledyne e2v’s CCD fabrication facility is critical to the
success and quality of future space science missions and remains committed to
being the long-term supplier of high specification and quality devices for the
world’s major space agencies and scientific instruments producers.
