Dental X-Ray Sensor Production

Photonics Spectra
Mar 2011
TowerJazz of Migdal Ha’Emeq, Israel, and e2v Technologies plc of Chelmsford, UK, have announced that e2v has increased the rate of production of its dental x-ray sensors, which incorporate TowerJazz’s 0.18-μm CMOS image sensor technology. The companies will work to create a new generation of system-on-chip sensors that benefit from high image quality and advanced levels of integration and embedded capabilities. Replacing conventional x-ray film, dental intraoral x-ray sensors provide dentists with an instant digital image on a screen rather than on film that must be developed.



GLOSSARY
x-ray film
A film or plate that is usually coated on both sides with a very fast emulsion that is sensitive to x-rays, and used to record x-ray diffraction patterns photographically.
