Euclid VIS instrument
The visible instrument (VIS) is composed of a matrix of 6×6 4096×4132 12-micron pixel CCDs (Charge Coupled Devices) provided by e2V, specially optimised for the Euclid mission. VIS will be equipped with one single very broad band filter covering the wavelength range from 550 nm to 900 nm, with a mean image resolution of about 0.23 arcsecond.
