Abstract
UNIQUE CHARGE-COUPLED DEVICES MAY BE ABLE TO RECORD PHENOMENA WITH INFORMATION SPANNING DC - 20GHZ. DATA TO BE RECORDED IS SAMPLED AT RATES UP TO 100 GS/S AND STORED TEMPORARILY IN THE CCD. IT IS THEN SHIFTED AT SLOW RATES INTO A CONVENTIONAL A/D AND DIGITAL MEMORY. PRELIMINARY RESEARCH SUGGESTS BROAD TRADE-OFFS AMONG RECORD LENGTH, SAMPLING INTERVAL, DYNAMIC RANGE, AND OTHER FACTORS. OUR FIRST STEP WILL BE TO ASSESS DNA'S NEEDS AND DEVELOP DETAILED TARGET SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE REQUIRED EQUIPMENT. THEN, A SET OF CANDIDATE CCD STRUCTURES AND SUPPORT ELEMENTSWILL BE CONFIRMED. MANUFACTURED. THISE JOINTS MADE FROM RIGID AND THERMALLY
