Caeleste “Analog photon counting” patent granted

posted by Patrick @ 16:17 PM

In the scope of Caeleste efforts towards low noise photo counting imagers, the analog photon counting patent application has been granted. The protected concept aims at producing large scale imagers with very high manufacturability, maintaining functionality at very high yield.

This patent is the first granted of a series of protected inventions covering the domain of CMOS photon counting image sensors both in visible and X-ray spectrum. Our patent and publication page has been updated accordingly.
