Albert Theuwissen's image sensor courses used to be theoretical in a sense that students did not do any experiments. This is going to change soon. Here is the mail I got from Albert:
"I will run a new course (first time in November, in Barcelona) with hands-on measurements and evaluation in the class room. I bought 10 laptops, 10 cameras, 10 power supplies, 10 lightsources, etc. to allow the course participants to measure sensors and cameras during the course. Characteristics that will be measured are : dark current, DSNU, black reference, defects, RTS pixels, light sensitivity, PRNU, spectral response, conversion factor, pixel FPN, column FPN, row FPN, MTF and of course ......... PTC !
This brand new course will be unique in the world. Nobody else is offering such a hands-on course in the imaging field."
While we are at Albert's educational activity, Delft University published Cheng Ma's MS Thesis "Pixel ADC Design for Hybrid CMOS Image Sensor" where Albert Theuwissen is the supervisor.
