High Pixel Density Infrared Sensors Enabling Augmented Vision

Speaker: Pawel Malinowski | Company: IMEC | Date: 12 May 2021 | Full Presentation

Image sensors using quantum dots as the photoactive layer have the potential to disrupt imaging and sensing, especially at wavelengths beyond the spectrum accessible by silicon. Thanks to monolithic integration directly on the readout circuit, pixel pitch can be scaled down and resolution can be maximized. Imec is developing technologies for short-wave infrared (SWIR) image sensors, focusing on compatibility with CMOS fab processing. Focal plane arrays with pixels smaller than 2 um are demonstrated, showing a route towards miniaturization of SWIR cameras. This technology enables introduction of infrared vision into applications that traditionally could not afford that.
