InVisage Quantum Dot–Based Camera Sensors: How They Work

Abstract:
Effectively. the technology works by suspending very small "quantum dots"--tiny semiconductors that absorb light and emit electrons--within a special polymer film. The film, which looks completely black, is then "spun" or painted on top of a traditional CMOS wafer.

What makes this different from current sensor technology is that the film captures all the light that hits the top of the chip in a layer only 500 nanometers thick; and it can send light directly to the silicon chip, according to the company. This is opposed to a conventional CMOS image sensor, where light typically has to pass through layers with metal connections before it hits a photo detector, which blocks out about half the photons.
