Linear Collider Flavour ID Collaboration (LCFI)

Bristol U, Lancaster U, Liverpool U, Oxford U, QMUL, RAL

Column Parallel CCD (CPCCD)

Concept 9 November 1998 at Frascati ECFA/DESY workshop, in response to new requirements for linear collider detectors (ultra-fast untriggered readout).

CPCCD operating at RAL 20 May 2003, 1 MHz clock, full parallel readout.

2 phase operation with low amplitude sinusoidal clocks: dramatically reduced feedthrough.

Potential for 1000 times faster readout than standard CCD.
