High-performance silicon imagers and their applications in astrophysics, medicine and other fields

S. Nikzad,    Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, USA

Abstract:

This chapter briefly describes some elements of physics and materials that constitute the essential criteria for producing high-performance silicon imagers. In particular, the chapter discusses back illumination and passivation of surface states as a key approach for enabling high performance in silicon imagers, independent of their electronic readout structure. The chapter provides a brief review of silicon imaging arrays, applications in planetary exploration and astronomy, as well as a brief mention of specific cases in the commercial and medical fields. ...
