This paper analyzes and compensates for process and temperature dependency among a (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) CMOS image sensor (CIS) array. Both the analysis and compensation are supported with experimental results on the CIS’s dark current, dark signal non-uniformity (DSNU), and conversion gain (CG). To model and to...

This paper presents methodologies for suppressing the spatial and the temporal noise in a CMOS image sensor (CIS). First of all, it demonstrates by using a longer-length column bias transistor, both the fixed pattern noise (FPN) and temporal noise can be suppressed. Meantime, it employs column-level oversampling delta-sigma ADCs to suppress...

In this work, a novel approach for measuring relative temperature variations across the active area of a CMOS image sensor itself is presented. 555 Image pixels have been replaced by temperature sensors pixels (Tixels) in the same pixel array layer. Both sensors, pixels and Tixels, utilize the same readout structure to obtain the data. This...

Point-of-care systems for the detection of infectious diseases are in great demand especially in developing countries. Lateral flow immunoassays are considered ideal biosensors for point-of-care diagnostics due to their numerous advantages. However, to quantify their results a low power, robust electronic reader is needed. A low power CMOS...

We present a high-performance back-illuminated three-dimensional stacked single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD), which is implemented in 45-nm CMOS technology for the first time. The SPAD is based on a P<sup>+</sup>/Deep N-well junction with a circular shape, for which N-well is intentionally excluded to achieve a wide depletion region, thus...

This paper presents a temporal noise analysis of charge-domain sampling readout circuits for Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors. In order to address the trade-off between the low input-referred noise and high dynamic range, a Gm-cell-based pixel together with a charge-domain correlated-double sampling (CDS) technique...

A deep subelectron temporal noise CMOS image sensor (CIS) with a Gm-cell based pixel and a correlated-double charge-domain sampling technique has been developed for photon-starved imaging applications. With the proposed technique, the CIS, which is implemented in a standard 0.18-μm CIS process, features pixel-level amplification and achieves an...

In this chapter, a new technology for low‐temperature (LT, 400°C) boron deposition is developed, which provides a smooth, uniform, closed LT boron layer. This technology is successfully employed to create near‐ideal LT PureB (pure boron) diodes with low, deep junction‐like saturation currents, allowing full integration of LT PureB photodiodes...

This thesis gives an insightful analysis of the pinned photodiode 4T CMOS pixel from three different aspects. Firstly, from the charge accumulated aspect, the PPD full well capacity and related parameters of influence are investigated such as the pinning voltage, and transfer gate potential barrier. Secondly, from the charge transfer aspect, the...

In this thesis, conventional high temperature (HT, 700 °C) PureB technology is optimized in order to fabricate detectors with improved key parameters such as the spatial uniformity of the responsivity. A novel technology for low temperature (LT, 400 °C) boron deposition is developed providing a uniform, smooth, closed LT boron layer. This...

Newly developed “pure-boron” photodiodes, with high sensitivity and stability in the whole ultraviolet range (UV), are described. The main purpose of this work is to create and characterize a large-area UV photodiode, representing a structure of a pixel in a backside illuminated CMOS image sensor, featuring maximum fill factor and hence...

This thesis investigates the ionizing radiation effects on 4T pixels and the elementary in-pixel test devices with regard to the electrical performance and the optical performance. In addition to an analysis of the macroscopic pixel parameter degradation, the radiation-induced degradation mechanisms are also presented from the microscopic...

A digital sun sensor is superior to an analog sun sensor in aspects of resolution, albedo immunity, and integration. The proposed Micro-Digital Sun Sensor (µDSS) is an autonomous digital sun sensor which is implemented by means of a CMOS image sensor, which is named APS+. The µDSS is designed specifically for micro-satellite application which...

This thesis presents the development of low-noise CMOS image sensors for radio-molecular imaging. The development is described in two directions: firstly, from the technology point of view to reduce the pixel noise level, and secondly from the design point of view to reduce the pixel readout circuits noise level. With respect to the SNR and...

Biological systems are a source of inspiration in the development of small autonomous sensor nodes. The two major types of optical vision systems found in nature are the single aperture human eye and the compound eye of insects. The latter are among the most compact and smallest vision sensors. The eye is a compound of individual lenses with...

The aim of this thesis was twofold: investigating the effect of ionizing radiation on 4-T CMOS image sensors and the possibility of realizing a CCD like sensor in standard 0.18-?m CMOS technology (for medical applications). Both the aims are complementary; borrowing and lending many aspects of radiation and device physics amongst each other.
