Paper Abstract

The state of the art in visible spectrum solid-state area arrays is discussed from an historical perspective. The major development during the decade of the 1960's was the first demonstration of self-scanned solid-state area imagers using transistors as photosensors. During the decade of the 1970's, major advances included the charge-coupled concept, temporal and spatial noise reduction and the understanding of aliasing vs. MTF. During the 1980's, solid-state imaging has continued to mature with advances in the control of defects, development of color filters for one-chip color camera, development of vertical anti-blooming and anti-smear structures and the use of thin films for vertical photosites.
