Lacera wafer

Teledyne Imaging has announced new large-area CMOS sensor technology for scientific imaging.

The firm's Lacera technology delivers greater than 90 per cent quantum efficiency and low noise architecture with up to 18-bit readout. Lacera sensors will be featured in next-generation CMOS cameras to be announced later this year, including x-ray, EUV and VIS-NIR versions.

Lacera, also called large-area CMOS, has its roots in Princeton Instruments, which Teledyne Technologies bought in 2019. The technology produces deep-cooled, low-noise performance on a multi-megapixel scale with large pixels, global shutter, and glow reduction all within one sensor.

The sensors are designed for applications as diverse as next-generation genomics, astronomical photometry, ultra-high-resolution x-ray and electron imaging.
