Teledyne e2v, part of the Teledyne Imaging Group, said today that it will continue as a long-term partner to develop, manufacture and supply CCD detectors for the high-end scientific market for ground science work in space exploration, Earth observation and microscopy, spectroscopy and astronomy .
The CCD wafers are fed into a furnace at the Teledyne e2v facility in the UK. CCD wafers are part of a specialized CCD wafer fabrication process.
e2v is a long-term supplier to the European Space Agency (ESA), NASA, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), in order to ensure that the detectors and systems must function properly To deliver scientific-grade visible light detection in an environment that requires a great deal of effort.
Miles Adcock, president of E2v’s Space and Quantum division, commented: “The invention of the CCD more than 50 years ago not only brought about a multi-billion dollar annual imaging industry, it also enabled the exploration of distant worlds and a better understanding of what we have today. Scientific achievement, it’s unbelievable.”
While other technology companies are turning to CMOS technology due to the continuous development of CCD technology, Teledyne Imaging, through its European subsidiary Teledyne e2v and Teledyne DALSA Foundry in Bromont, Canada, continues to provide mission-critical, high-quality CCD detectors that enable The most demanding imaging applications. In addition, the group will continue to invest in complementary technologies such as CMOS, x-ray, spectroscopy and infrared, offering a well-balanced set of business lines to meet a growing customer base in existing and emerging markets.
