Patent: More Work Being Done on Organic Sensors
« on: May 24, 2018, 04:37:02 PM »
Are organic sensors the next big thing in sensor technology? They could be. Canon along with other companies continue to put resources into their development

US Patent 20180138432 from Canon News:

Canon continues to research organic photo electric elements, this one goes into a little more details, and discusses an actual sensor more so than prior patent applications. Read moreā€¦

I do not remember ever hearing this term before.
Is this like the local farmers market?
I am all for sensors made without man made fertilizers, antibiotics and insecticides.

Similar term to Organic LEDs I suppose, which are all the rage in tv and telephone screens these days. Organic chemistry usually means carbon is in the compound.

Organic sensors and led's have been under development for a long time.  Many billions of dollars have been thrown at organic led's and not we actually see them moving into mainstream.

You can check out patents
2007-088033
2010-183060
This patent improves one aspect of organic sensor technology by reducing dark current.  Its pretty technical but simply put, its a method of insulating layers.  Its so subtle and thin that spotting use of the patent in a competing product may be difficult once the sensor sandwich is bonded together.

"DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS
[0017] The present disclosure relates to a reduction in dark
current in a photoelectric conversion element including a
photoelectric conversion layer containing an organic compound.
Separation of electric charges generated between two
types of organic compounds in a photoelectric conversion
layer can be suppressed to reduce dark current."

Finally, they can photograph dark matter.
