    CMOS sensor inventor Eric Fossumís Lecture on Image Sensors


    “Photons to Bits and Beyond: The Science & Technology of Digital Image Sensors"

    Now on Youtube as a one-hour overview of the technology covering subjects like:

    how sensors basically work
    the potential risks to society of the technology
    noise
    demosaicing
    diffraction
    the megapixel race
    and that “the force of marketing is greater than the force of engineering”

    Can be seen on dpreview: http://www.dpreview.com/news/1110/11...ssumspeech.asp

    or on Image Sensors World: http://image-sensors-world.blogspot....e-sensors.html


    Thanks to Marc (fotografz) for mentioning the lecture, in another thread on the Sony board.
    I think it deserves a broader audience, that's why I post it here.

    Maybe most of us are too busy to watch a one-hour lecture.

    The first 4Ĺ minute is an introduction of Eric Fossum himself, and the first 20 minutes are primarily about potential risks to society of the ways technology can be used.

    So you may actually skip the first 20 minutes and jump directly into the "Science and Technology" chapter at 20:57 if you prefer so.

    Personally I was especially interested in the part about diffraction, which can be found at about 24:20 ...

    and in reduced pixel sizes at about 43:21
