- If the incident light is incident perpendicularly, and the photoelectric conversion film thickness of the optical path length is equal
- If the incident light is incident at an angle, the optical path length is longer than the film thickness of the photoelectric conversion film
- That because of the long optical path length to improve the photoelectric conversion efficiency, high sensitivity can be obtained.
The patent application also talks about Foveon-like sensor structure.
