George E. Smith

George E. Smith (born May 10, 1930) is an American scientist and co-inventor of the Charge-coupled device.

Smith worked at Bell Labs from 1959 to 1986, where he led research into novel lasers and semiconductor devices.

In 1969, Smith and Willard Boyle invented the Charge-Coupled Device (CCD), for which they have been joint recipients of the Franklin Institute’s Stuart Ballantine Medal in 1973, the 1974 IEEE Morris N. Liebmann Memorial Award, and the 2006 Charles Stark Draper Prize.
