Multispectral Imaging CMOS Sensor
ProblemMultipixel image sensors are widely used in digital camera, LIDAR, medical imaging devices, and other equipment. For color image sensors, typically arrays of pixel elements are used for each pixel position. Light reaches each pixel element through a respective color filter, so each pixel element responds primarily to a single color, for example...
