The rise of image-based metrological systems has helped drive the development of sensors and the optical technology that supports them, responding to the ever-increasing demand for improved resolution, sensitivity, and spectral range.
The first digital camera was produced in 1975. Since then, the image sensor evolution has continued and has led to dramatic changes in signal-to-noise ratio, speed (frame rate), and fill factor. As this trend has progressed, traditional trade-offs in technical capability have become less important, since the collection of images with more than 100 MP — even in low-light conditions — is now not only less expensive but commonplace.
In our cover story, Peter Bauer, Andreas Bich, and Thomas…READ MORE
