1.12um Sony Pixel Variations under Electron Microscope

R.Matthews, N.Falkner, and M.Sorella from The University of Adelaide, Australia publish an updated version of their paper "Reverse engineering the Raspberry Pi Camera V2: A study of pixel non-uniformity using a scanning electron microscope."

"In this paper we reverse engineer the Sony IMX219PQ image sensor, otherwise known as the Raspberry Pi Camera v2.0. We provide a visual reference for pixel non-uniformity by analysing variations in transistor length, microlens optic system and in the photodiode. We use these measurements to demonstrate irregularities at the microscopic level and link this to the signal variation measured as pixel non-uniformity used for unique identification of discrete image sensors."

  1. those photos are amazing. Its amazing how technology works and really looks like. I admire companies who can grow such sensors!
