Abstract excerpted from the report:

The peformance characteristics of the Loral CCDs selected for WFPC2 are reviewed to assess their likely impact upon the performance of the instrument.

The WFPC2 CCDs are thick, frontside illuminated devices with a Lumogen phosphor coating, while WFPC-I CCDs are thinned, backside illuminated devices with a coronene phosphor.
