4.2.2 The significance of the average energy

The average thermal energy of the atoms in a solid indicates how much they are 'rattling' or vibrating around their mean positions. Since the atoms are close together, virtually touching, and because atoms are almost incompressible, they cannot get much closer. But they can get further apart. So, since thermal energy is manifested in the vibrations of the atoms, bigger vibrations mean that the atoms must spend more time further apart. On average then, there is a tendency for a solid to expand

3.1.2 Shutter

The electronic shutter that freezes the frame for read-out adds more complexity, but can be based on the standard MOS fabrication steps. In effect, at the end of image capture, the charge at each pixel is first switched into another ‘blind’ MOS capacitor that sits in the read-out line for each row, as the middle of the three buckets per pixel. You should have already guessed that the switch is yet another MOS device. Once switched into the read-out line, the row data are isolated from the
