Course Contents: Electronic imaging is a dynamic and continuously evolving, multi-disciplinary field of research. Solid-state imaging is going through a renaissance propelled by new applications, especially in the life sciences and in medical and environmental monitoring. This course describes architectures and techniques necessary to use, understand, and implement state-of-the-art integrated system-on-chip (SOC) imagers. We review the device physics of photodiodes and photogates, and we discuss in detail CMOS active pixels and CCDs. New developments in the field of high dynamic range, high sensitivity, low noise, and time-resolved single-photon imaging will be studied and compared. The course will conclude with an overview of state-of-the-art applications requiring the image sensor technology discussed throughout the course.
Study Goals: The goals of the course can be summarized as follows:
1. focus the course on imaging, due to the expertise present at TU Delft that we want to take advantage of in teaching this course. The new focus will require a slightly new title; we propose to simplify it to “Imaging Sensors”;
2. teach conventional image sensors and their architectures, as well as emerging image sensors.
In this perspective we rewrote the text of the abstract of the course as follows.
Education Method: ex-cathedra
Assessment: We will have regular quizzes that will be conducted and corrected in class. The final exam will be a paper presentation and an individual poster presentation to other students and the instructors. The weights will be 25% for the quizzes and 75% for the poster presentation.
