Biomimetic photodetector ‘sees’ in color

25 agosto 2014

A CMOS-compatible, biomimetic color photodetector has been developed that directly responds to red, green and blue light in much the same way the human eye does. It uses an aluminum grating that can be added to silicon photodetectors with the silicon microchip industry’s mainstay technology, «complementary metal-oxide semiconductor,» or CMOS.
