ac186bab57 The maximum capacity of each well is known as the well depth, typically about 105 electrons per pixel.. During the readout phase, cells are shifted down the entire area of the CCD. Other Fields of Interest. Sensor sizes. After the exposure time is passed, the cells are read out one line at a time.

However, as with ICCDs, the gain that is applied in the gain register is stochastic and the exact gain that has been applied to a pixel's charge is impossible to know. S.
