Quanta Image Sensor
Every Photon Counts
Being developed at Gigajot, QIS is the next generation of image sensors where high-speed single-photon detection is used to unlock new image capture capabilities for consumers and professionals not possible with today’s devices.
"Jot" is the specialized pixel that is sensitive enough to detect a single photon of light. Revolutionary detection technologies are developed to enable accurate photon-counting at room temperature without the use of electron avalanche multiplication.
A QIS may contain hundreds of millions to billions of jots. Innovative circuit design technologies are used to scan the jots at an ultra-high frame rate to capture every single photon.
Innovative Image Processing
Photon bits fields are binned over temporal and spatial dimensions during the image processing to create image pixels. One can access the location and arrival time of every single photon. It enables a variety of options for the image processing and unlocks new image capture capabilities for consumers and professionals.
