We describe the principle and the operation of a 120 × 100 pixel antiblooming array. Each cell in the array is made up of a hydrogenated amorphous silicon photoconductor layer driving a ferroelectric liquid-crystal shutter. The device is designed to be coupled with a CCD camera to prevent high-blooming overload and image lag.
