How Is An Image Created?
Cameras are made up of a vast number of components, but what creates your image is the image sensor. An image sensor detects light wavelengths and then translates that into energy currents that are converted into data. The data is then sent to the interface which converts the data into the image you see on your screen.
The root of our technology is based in our pixel array that is made up of individual unit pixels. Our unit pixels can detect any incoming photons to trigger the electrical current, amplifying the output to give a higher-quality image at a faster rate providing a faster integration time.

Our image sensor can immediately provide a higher photocurrent output despite any setting due to our pixel array using a unique design. The design allows the sensor to absorb NIR and SWIR wavelengths with decreased noise levels, increasing the sensor's dynamic range and SNR.
In comparison to exotic materials such as InGaAS and Black Silicon, our QPD™ sensor is able to see into further wavelengths while also maintaining a higher sensitivity.
