Image Sensors - Caeleste Image Sensors for Medical and Life Science
Cutting edge image sensors Image and photonic sensors are used over a very broad wavelength range to support medical diagnostics and life-science experiments. As large part of the medical imaging diagnostics is based on X-ray technology. Caeleste can offer wafer scale devices suited for single photon and even energy resolved X-ray imaging. In this way the dose for the patient can be drastically reduced. X-ray imagers can be based both on indirect or scintillator based detection (typical sensitivity in the order of 1000 e-/photon) as well as on direct detection schemes for ultimate performance (with.10 000e-/photon).
