Abstract: Charge Coupled Devices (CCDs) have been the favorite scientific imaging detector for astronomical use for several decades. Recent progress has been made in developing several new types of CCDs, as well as other imaging devices such as CMOS imagers. We discuss the current state of scientific imagers and their associated technologies. In particular we will describe the current state of (standard) epitaxial CCDs, monolithic and hybridized CMOS imagers, orthogonal transfer devices and arrays, and deep- and fully-depleted detectors.
