dc.description.abstractIt is a common misconception to consider the intensified charge coupled device (ICCD) to be simply a finite element detector. In reality, one must consider the ICCD as an optical system in and of itself, complete with its own throughput and point spread function. Only in this light can an accurate model for the ICCD performance be developed. Variations in signal to noise ratio (SNR) with image size can have broad implications in the design and modeling of ICCD based systems. Results from an experiment devised to measure the variation of SNR performance with input image size for selected Generation 2 microchannel plate (MCP) ICCD's are presented. Also presented is a generalized theoretical model for ICCD SNR performance for small images.
