Paper Abstract

In Frame Transfer (FT) imagers all of the imaging area is sensitive to light. If one succeeds in defining pixels of only two photolithographic details (the pixel itself and the separation to its neighbours) FT sensors would allow maximum resolution as well as maximum sensitivity. This paper shows how the use of multiple horizontal read-out registers, vertical anti-blooming and the "accordion principle" allows us to achieve this goal. These concepts are illustrated with a 7.5 mm image diagonal colour image sensor and a 5.2 mm diagonal black and white imager, both with two interlaced fields of 180.000 pixels each.
