Paper Abstract

All optoelectronic detectors today are based either on integrating or demodulating readout approaches. In this paper we introduce an optical detector that in-situ combines these two readout methods thus enabling simultaneous demodulation and image acquisition of the impinging light signal. Measurement results of a realized chip for optical storage systems with six demodulating paths and a 5x5 matrix of integrating pixels are presented. Furthermore, approaches for system integration of the novel architecture in the field of optical storage and fibre transmission systems are described.
