Abstract
Photosensitive detectors play a predominant role in data collection procedures of optical signal processing applications. They constitute the transition stage between the optical and electrical portions of the experiment. Among these detectors, linear array image sensors are widely used when high resolution measurements are needed. However, before incorporating these detectors into an experiment, it is important to evaluate their performances. In this report, different tests are presented to allow a characterization of the performance of linear image sensors. The procedures focus on four different aspects of the detectors: the signal structure (including the noise), the sensitivity profile of the detector and the elements and the dynamnic range of the detector. As an example, the linear array image sensor TH7805 from Thomson CSF is analyzed.
