Theoretical Performance and Applications of a Novel 128-amplifier Delta-Doped UV Enhanced Skipper CCD

Abstract

Our group is working on developing Skipper CCDs with enhanced UV QE. In this paper we present the design and readout electronics for a 128-amplifier Skipper CCD. We calculate theoretical Skipper noise models and optimize readout times for a selection of scenarios. We provide the status of our on-going effort for extensive characterization of the noise performance of delta-doped enhanced Skipper CCDs, including our characterization setup and absolute quantum efficiency measurements. We propose a tentative project timeline, including planned lot runs, characterization tests, and on-sky testing.
