charge-transfer device

in radiation detection
A charge-transfer device has a metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) structure that is composed of many independent pixels where charge is stored in such a way that the charge pattern corresponds to the irradiation pattern. These devices can be linear or two-dimensional. According to the method used to detect the charge pattern, two types of charge-transfer devices can be distinguished: charge-coupled devices (CCDs) and charge-injection devices (CIDs).
