What does CCD mean?

The CCD is another popular photodetector that is widely used in digital imaging and video. As opposed to PN junction-based photodiodes, is built on a metal oxide semiconductor structure. CCD is a light-sensitive integrated circuit that converts photons to electrons to capture images. The image elements are broken down into pixels by a CCD sensor. Each pixel is converted into an electrical charge, The intensity of which is proportional to the amount of light captured by that pixel.
