Quanta Image Sensors
Wed, Jan 28, 2015 1:00P EST
Join us for a FREE webinar - Wednesday, January 28, 2015, 1 p.m. EST Demand for high sensitivity and high dynamic range motivates new approaches for image sensors. The quanta image sensor (QIS) concept involves counting individual photons on sensors made of 1 billion or more specialized sub-diffraction-limit photodetectors (called jots). A series of bit planes is generated through high-speed readout, and a kernel or "cubicle" of bits (X,Y, t) is used to create a single output image pixel. The size of the cubicle can be adjusted post-acquisition to optimize image quality. Jots are read out at 1000 fps, for a data rate exceeding 1Tb/s. Basically, we are trying to count photons as they arrive at the sensor. Recent progress toward realizing the QIS for commercial and scientific purposes will be discussed. This includes investigation of a pump-gate jot device implemented in a 65-nm process, power-efficient readout electronics (currently less than 20 pJ/b in 0.18 um...

Light Sources for Stimulated Vibrational Microscopy
Tue, Apr 22, 2014 1:00P EST
Additional questions and answers:  Q: What is the power intensity for the adjusted supercontinuum Stokes laser? A: There are at least two PCF modules commonly used for supercontinuum Stokes generation. The multiplex-CARS (M-CARS) community and the spectral focussing CARS (SF-CARS) community generally use different fibres, and thus each utilize different power intensities across the usable wavelength range. We use a supercontinuum Stokes beam that spans 950 to...
