The operational mechanism of the charge modulation device (CMD) as an image sensor is presented. A newly developed device simulator, the transistor analysis program for imagers calculating non-steady-state equations (TRINE) is used in this analysis. Comparison of the calculated results with measured data shows that the model predictions are consistent with measured electrical and optical characteristics within a range of 20%. The operational mechanism has been clarified, and the accuracy of the method proves that it is effective in quantitative device design. The discretization scheme of the cylindrical coordinate system used is also shown
