The Nobel Prize in Physics 2009 was divided, one half awarded to Charles Kuen Kao "for groundbreaking achievements concerning the transmission of light in fibers for optical communication", the other half jointly to Willard S. Boyle and George E. Smith "for the invention of an imaging semiconductor circuit – the CCD sensor".
Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) Image Sensor Market is driven by low price of CCD base image sensors; low cost advantage of charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensor is estimated to exhaust due to obsolesce of this technology. http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/charge-coupled-device-image-sensor-market.html
Revo #SecurityCamera is a powerful Infrared Illuminator bullet camera that uses a high sensitive 1/3 inch (1/4 inch) interline transfer Charge Coupled Device (CCD) image sensor, and all state circuitry, which provides extremely long life and high reliability.
The new Corning Epic BT is the industry’s first optically based, single mode benchtop label-free detection system for cell based and biochemical assays. Corning’s Epic BT System is a feature packed device with simple easy to use data collection software and it uses a charge coupled device (CCD) to detect wavelength shift for analyzing whole microplates. http://www.labcritics.com/2013/07/05/corning-introduces-epic-bt-label-free-detection-system/
