Join us for Prof. Robert Henderson IEEE SSCS Society Lecture on “Biomedical and Scientific Imaging with CMOS SPAD Sensors” in Tyndall National Institute and online from 4 to 6pm next Monday, 4th December 2023
Advanced manufacturing technologies originally developed for CMOS image sensors have catapulted single photon avalanche diode arrays into the mainstream of imaging leading to volume products in the 3D time of flight imaging and automotive LIDAR. Medical and scientific applications have been slower to emerge but are poised to leverage the wide spectral range, high detection efficiency, low dark noise, picosecond resolution and dense digital integration provided by these technology platforms. This talk will highlight CMOS SPAD solutions to a number of medical and scientific applications including Positron Emission Tomography (PET), fluorescence lifetime imaging for microscopy and cancer margin endoscopy, optical neural interfaces and Raman spectroscopy. The circuit architectures will be reviewed illustrating the symbiosis with 3D time of flight technology. The prospects for future advances exploiting recent 3D stacked process trends will be examined.
