This paper considers four factors affecting the functioning of a surface channel CCD. The factors considered are: the interface states, feed forward due to barrier modulation, surface potential fluctuations, and the avalanche multiplication in a CCD. A computer program has also been developed to analyze the performance of a CCD.
