Consequences of thick CCDs on image processing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


Astronomers are increasingly using thick (c. 100 micron) CCDs due to their superior red response (e.g. the PanSTARRS, DES, HSC, and LSST cameras). I introduce the signatures of diffusion and both permanent and induced electric fields on the data, and discuss the consequences for the PSF, astrometry, and photometry.
