Novel organic imaging technology
NikkoIA SAS, a French company specialised in the development of visible and near infrared photodetectors and image sensors has announced the introduction of two new product families of organic imaging technology, which are said to extend the company’s portfolio to X-rays and validate its compatibility with substrates based on CMOS technology.
The first of the new systems are X-ray sensitive image sensors, based on 256x256, 98μm-pixels organic image sensors, coupled with a CsI scintillator optimized for 70-90keV energy. The second are VGA CMOS sensors with 15μm-pixels based on organic photodiodes and CMOS pixel arrays.
These developments according to NikkoIA especially enable the production of image sensors which are interesting for dental radiography and some security applications. They also enable other combinations such as the production of small size, high resolution, SWIR-sensitive CMOS image sensors at a very low cost structure, opening up new imaging solutions in the medical or automotive markets.
