NHK Continues to Improve Organic Image Sensor

Tech-On: NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories (STRL) is going to showcase a full-color organic image sensor, which is a CMOS image sensor made by stacking an organic semiconductor material as a photosensitive layer on a transparent TFT array. The sensor has a resolution of 128 x 96 pixels for each of the RGB colors. NHK installed the sensor in a camcorder so that it can shoot color video. The TFT array was developed based on zinc oxide (ZnO) in collaboration with the Kochi University of Technology.

The company plans to develop organic image sensors in 10 years for HD camcorders and in 20 years for super high vision camcorders.
