CCD Array

In imaging, a row of charge-coupled devices (CCDs) that act to pick up light reflecting off a surface from many different directions. In a scanner, a CCD array may only be an inch long, and can scan and measure the light impinging on it from as many as 2,048 points. Some scanners utilize two rows of CCDs, capable of much greater scanning capacity. See CCD, CCD Scanner, and Digital Photography.
