    A mosaic of four STA1600 10kx10k CCDs which were all backside processed at ITL is used in the USNO Robotic Astrometric Telescope (URAT).  See this link for more details.  Also see this article.Read More
  • WIYN ODI Camera Update

    Thursday, January 22, 2015
    Additional STA2200 CCDs have been added to the WIYN ODI focal plane to make a "half gigapixel" camera.  The 5x6 array can be seen in the photo below after installation of the detectors. ITL produced the back illuminated STA2200 Orthogonal Transfer CCDs for the WIYN One Degree Imager project.  Engineering verification was completed by the WIYN team on September 17. See this link for details.Read More

    This project was recently completed with the final delivery of the 200th STA3600A CCD sensor to the University of Texas. The University of Arizona Imaging Technology Lab has made its first delivery of image detectors to the University of Texas. They’re destined to become part of the Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment (HETDEX). These detectors which are highly sensitive to light will be an integral part of a fiber optic fed spectrograph. Once completed, the instrument will begin analyzing light from 1 million galaxies over a 3 year period. The gathered data will add to our knowledge...Read More
