Image Sensors on Electronic Imaging 2009 Symposium

2009 IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging Science and Technology Symposium will be held on January 18-22 in San Jose. The conference has a full track on image sensors and related areas. Below are just few of the most interesting papers to be presented on the Symposium:

Nanoplasmonic filters for image sensors
Author(s): Stephane Getin, Yohan Désières, Catherine Pellé, Olivier Lartigue, Ludovic Poupinet, Laurent Frey, Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (France)

Potentially these filters can substitute today's organic ones. I wonder how far they have to go till the mass production.

An ultra fast 100 ps, 100µm 3D pixel imager
Author(s): Alex Kluge, Pierre Jarron, Jan Kaplon, Petra Riedler, Teemu S. Tiuraniemi, Fadmar Osmic, CERN (Switzerland); Giulio Dellacasa, Gianni Mazza, Angelo Rivetti, Sorin Martoiu, Angelo C. Ramusino, Massimiliano Fiorini, Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (Italy); Elena Albarran Martin, CERN (Switzerland)

A global electronic shutter pixel using pinned diodes fabricated in standard CMOS image sensor technology
Author(s): Keita Yasutomi, Shizuoka Univ. (Japan); Toshihiro Tamura, Photron Ltd. (Japan); Masanori Furuta, Toshiba Corp. (Japan); Shinya Itoh, Shoji Kawahito, Shizuoka Univ. (Japan)

It's interesting to see Toshiba eying toward global shutter solution.

Low Gr-Gb sensitivity imbalance 3.2M CMOS-image sensor with 2.2-μm pixel
Author(s): Nagataka Tanaka, Junji Naruse, Hirofumi Yamashita, Ikuko Inoue, Makoto Monoi, Toshiba Corp. (Japan)

It's nice to see that Toshiba still improves 2.2um generation.

Experimental color video capturing equipment with three 33-megapixel CMOS image sensors
Author(s): Takayuki Yamashita, NHK Science & Technical Research Labs. (Japan); Steven Huang, Forza Silicon Corporation (United States); Ryohei Funatsu, NHK Science & Technical Research Labs. (Japan); Barmak Mansoorian, Forza Silicon Corporation (United States); Kohji Mitani, Yuji Nojiri, NHK Science & Technical Research Labs. (Japan)

This paper sheds some light on Forza's customers and projects.

Computational modeling of CMOS image sensor pixels: from module lens to photoelectron
Author(s): Jeff Mackey, Victor A. Lenchenkov, William Gazeley, Xiaofeng Fan, Ulrich C. Boettiger, Gennadiy A. Agranov, Aptina Imaging (United States)

A day and night MOS imager spectrally adjusted for a wide range of color temperatures
Author(s): Shinzo Koyama, Masahiro Kasano, Keisuke Tanaka, Kazuo Fujiwara, Toshinobu Matsuno, Yutaka Hirose, Yasuhiro Shimada, Panasonic Corporation (Japan)

High-speed sequential image acquisition using a CMOS image sensor with a multi-lens optical system and its application for three-dimensional measurement
Author(s): Daisuke Miyazaki, Hiroki Shimizu, Osaka City Univ. (Japan); Yoshizumi Nakao, Takashi Toyoda, Yasuo Masaki, Funai Electric Co., Ltd. (Japan)

3D imagers becoming a field of quite intensive work.

Very-large-area CCD image sensors: concept and cost-effective research
Author(s): Erik W. Bogaart, Inge M. Peters, Agnes C. Kleimann, Erik-Jan P. Manoury, Wilco Klaassens, Walter de Laat, DALSA Corp. (Netherlands); Cees Draijer, Raymond Frost, DALSA Corp. (Canada); Jan T. Bosiers, DALSA Corp. (Netherlands)

Decoupling light collection efficiency and color crosstalk from the Quantum Efficiency Spectrum for the CMOS image sensor pixel development
Author(s): Yang Wu, Philip J. Cizdziel, Howard E. Rhodes, OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (United States)

This very rare appearence of Omnivision pixel team should not be missed.

Microlens performance limits in sub-2um pixel CMOS image sensors
Author(s): Yijie Huo, Christian C. Fesenmaier, Peter B. Catrysse, Stanford Univ. (United States)

Sensor information capacity and spectral sensitivities
Author(s): Frédéric Cao, Frédéric Guichard, Hervé Hornung, DxO Labs. (France)

2PFC CMOS image sensors: better image quality at low cost
Author(s): Douglas J. Tweet, Jong-Jan Lee, Jon M. Speigle, Sharp Labs. of America, Inc. (United States); Daniel Tamburrino, Sharp Labs. of America, Inc. (United States) and Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (Switzerland)

I don't know what is 2PFC, but if it really delivers better image at lower cost, we'll see Sharp among the image sensor leaders again.

Effects of imaging lens f-number on sub-2 µm CMOS image sensor pixel performance
Author(s): Christian C. Fesenmaier, Peter B. Catrysse, Stanford Univ. (United States)

Effects of imaging lens f-number on sub-2 µm CMOS image sensor pixel performance
Author(s): Christian C. Fesenmaier, Peter B. Catrysse, Stanford Univ. (United States)
