Significance and Use
This terminology was drafted to exclude any commercial relevance to any one vendor by using only general terms that are acknowledged by all vendors and should be revised as charge-coupled device (CCD) technology matures. This terminology uses standard explanations, symbols, and abbreviations.
1.1 This terminology brings together and clarifies the basic terms and definitions used with scientific grade cooled charge-coupled device (CCD) detectors, thus allowing end users and vendors to use common documented terminology when evaluating or discussing these instruments. CCD detectors are sensitive to light in the region from 200 to 1100 nm and the terminology outlined in the document is based on the detection technology developed around CCDs for this range of the spectrum.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
