Abstract

Photodetector size imposes a fundamental limit on the amount of information that can be recorded by an image sensor. Compact, high-resolution sensors are generally preferred for portable electronic devices such as mobile phones and digital cameras, and as a result, a significant effort has been invested in improving the image quality provided by small-area image sensors. Reducing photodetector size, however, still faces challenges in implementation requiring improvements in current technology to meet the demand for ultracompact imaging systems such as cameras. An issue with a decrease in size is associated with photodetectors utilizing color filters. In most commonly used camera designs thes..
