Targeted to systems analysts and integrators, the 375-page volume CMOS/CCD Sensors and Camera Systems discusses pixels, datels,disels and resels; radiometry and photometry; and CCD fundamentals, including photodetection, array operation and architecture, and low-light-level devices. It covers CMOS basics, addressing pixel electronics, and smaller pixel potential limitations and design evolution. Array parameters, including defects, microlenses, well capacity, color filter arrays and number of detectors are detailed along with array performance, including quantum efficiency, responsivity and dark current. Camera design, linear system theory, modulation transfer functions, sampling and image quality also are addressed. Gerald C. Holst and Terrence S. Lomheim; JCD Publishing, Winter Park, Fla., and SPIE Press, Bellingham, Wash., 2007; $90.
