Investigation of Dark Energy remains one of the most compelling tasks for modern cosmology. It can be studied with several probes which are accessible through precise and deep surveys of the Universe. In the talk I will review the status and plans for Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, which will precisely measure the positions and shapes of billions of galaxies along with estimates of their distances, providing an order-of-magnitude improvement relative to current experiments. LSST Camera employs thick, fully depleted CCDs with extended infrared sensitivity. The talk will provide more detail on the camera design and will discuss limitations on the achievable precision coming from the instrumentation.
