Samsung Develops 150um Pixels

Yahoo: Samsung Mobile LCD Division has completed development of a flat panel X-ray detector (FPXD) for radiology machines using digital imaging with thin-film transistor (TFT) technology. To create its FPXD, Samsung attached photodiodes to a TFT substrate that was produced using its proprietary amorphous silicon technology. The X-rays are detected photon by photon and then converted into visible light, which in turn is converted to electrical signals.

Samsung has created an image enhancement function which is claimed to eliminate most digital image noise interference to provide the highest radiographic sensitivity in the industry.

The new FPXD measures 45 centimeters (cm) wide x 46cm high (or 61cm diagonally) and boasts a 3072 x 3072 (9.4 megapixels) resolution providing ultra-high definition images. The device will be available worldwide beginning first quarter, 2008.
