Wide field correction allowing large field to benefit from adaptive optics (AO) is challenging in more than one aspect. We address here the wavefront sensor (WFS) detector side where, in addition to high sensitivity and low noise, the simultaneous detection of multiple laser beacons and the large number of sub-apertures in a ShackHartmann WFS require a detector to have a large imaging area while preserving a very high readout frame rate. The detector considered has a frame area of 264×264 pixels with a pixel size of 48 microns. By splitting the image into two framestore areas during readout, repetition rates of more than 1000 frames per second can be achieved. The electronic noise contribution is approximately 3 electrons at the operating temperature. We therefore analyze its performances, showing it fulfills the requirements, in a wavefront sensing application: the measurement of centroids in the case of a Shack-Hartmann WFS for the ARGOS AO project.
