This paper will also introduce some of the differences between charge coupled devices and complementary metal oxide semiconductor sensors, methods to improve low light performance, approaches to improve radiation tolerance, and alternatives to visible light imaging, such as infrared cameras and time-of-flight sensors.* The work presented in this paper was funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration of the Department of Energy, Office of International Nuclear Safeguards.
