Charge-Coupled Device

(CCD) A semiconductor technology used to build light-sensitive electronic devices such as cameras and image scanners.

Such devices may detect either colour or black-and-white.

Each CCD chip consists of an array of light-sensitive photocells.

The photocell is sensitised by giving it an electrical charge prior to exposure.
