The following programs are freely available. They consist of IDL procedures and are useful for CCD camera characterisation.

CalcGainEMCCD: To calculate the gain of an EMCCD camera system using a single faintly illuminated image.

AnalyseXRAYs: To analyse Fe55 X-ray images to calculate CTE and gain.

CCDgain : To measure the gain of a conventional CCD using the photon-transfer technique.

CCD Virtual Oscilloscope: A series of programs to synthesise CCD video waveforms incorporating white, flicker and reset noise components.
