The purpose of this thesis is to validate the specifications of the CCD 486 as specified by Fairchild Imaging, the manufacturer of the CCD and Spectral Instruments, the manufacturer of the camera control electronics and supporting hardware. Specifications have been provided by both companies and are shown in Appendix A. This study is necessary because of the nature of the experiments to be analyzed using the CCD 486. In addition, the thesis will propose new testing methods for electronically shuttered CCD imagers that are not well understood.
