Optical Sensors in CMOS technology

© Fraunhofer IIS/Stephan Junger

We are developing optical and opto-electronic components for use in optical sensor systems and also do system integration. We do integration of photosensors with signal processing electronics in standard CMOS technologies. Photo sensors can be designed as single sensors or sensor lines and arrays.

An outstanding feature is the custom specific design of colour and polarization sensor. This is achieved by nano-structuring the metal planes used in CMOS technology. For spectroscopic applications we are designing suitable optics for illumination and signal detection and build up prototypes. Besides preprocessing of sensor signals we also provide signal evaluation and the appropriate software development.
