abstract

We present a characterization of the significant noise mechanisms in a microchannel image intensifier and CCD image recording system intended for applications in ultrafast imaging systems used at LLNL for nuclear science. The system under study consists of a generation two image intensifier a relay lens and a cooled CCD imaging array of 640 by 1024 pixels. Fixed pattern noise is significantly reduced by flat fielding techniques. The remaining major noise mechanisms are the intensifier shot noise and a noise factor that characterizes the non-idealness of the system. Results are given for the intensifier noise factor'' s functional dependence on input irradiance levels gain settings and accelerating voltages.
