Title: Integrated Infrared and Visible Image Sensors
Inventors: Eric R. Fossum , Bedabrata Pain
Abstract: Semiconductor imaging devices integrating an array of visible detectors and another array of infrared detectors into a single module to simultaneously detect both the visible and infrared radiation of an input image. The visible detectors and the infrared detectors may be formed either on two separate substrates or on the same substrate by interleaving visible and infrared detectors.
