How It Works

The Acuros® CQD® camera products use our patented CQD sensor technology. CQD sensors are fabricated using low-cost deposition techniques to produce quantum dot photodiodes directly on CMOS readout integrated circuits (ROICs).

  • Transparent Electrode
  • Other Thin Film
  • Quantum Dots
  • Metal Pixel Electrode
  • CMOS-based read-out

The CQD® Process:

The process requires no hybridization, no epitaxial growth or exotic substrate materials, scaling easily to high volume production. The approach employs low-cost, solution-processed, colloidal quantum dots to form small pitch p-n photodiode arrays sensitive in both the SWIR and visible spectral bands.

How it Stacks up

Today the SWIR imaging market is dominated by InGaAS sensors whose fabrication method imposes limitations on pixel size, pixel spacing and sensor resolution. With the introduction of SWIR’s Acuros CQD Sensor, production is more affordable and easier to scale, without sacrificing performance.
