Deep Insights into CMOS Sensors (in English) Dr. Albert Theuwissen 2.10.204

Deep Insights into CMOS Sensors (in English)


With Imaging Expert Dr. Albert Theuwissen

CMOS image sensors can be found in many applications, ranging from consumer to professional.  And actually over time, more applications with solid-state imagers will be added.  That means that more engineers are going to be exposed to the solid-state imaging technology.
This course is intended to make the newcomers in the field familiar with the ins and outs of CMOS image sensor technology.  The two day training is held by the imaging-expert Dr. Albert Theuwissen in English. After a short introduction the course will focus on the general working principles of the CMOS imagers as well as on the detailed description of the pixel structure.  Main question will be: what can be done with these pixels and what are the practical limits?

Next the general imaging characteristics will be discussed as their dark current, anti-blooming, global shutter, rolling shutter, several fixed-pattern as well as temporal noise sources.  At the end of the course, a specification of an existing CMOS image sensor will be analyzed.  To make the course as interactive as possible, participants can bring their own sensor specification that can be analyzed and discussed in the class room.

Dr. Albert Theuwissen authored the book „Solid-State Imaging with Charge-Coupled Devices“. This work is still considered as one of the main textbooks in the field of solid-state imaging.
In March 2001, he became part-time professor at the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. In Delft his main attention goes to the coaching of PhD students researching CMOS image sensors.
In April 2002, he joined DALSA Corp. to act first as the company‘s Chief Technology Officer and later as the Chief Scientist of DALSA Semiconductors. After he left DALSA in September 2007, he founded Harvest Imaging and now he is fully focusing on training, coaching and teaching in the field of solid-state imaging technology.
In 2008 Albert Theuwissen received the SMPTE‘s (Society for Motion Pictures and Television Engineers) Fuji Gold Medal for his contributions in research, development and education in the field of solid-state image capturing.

Workshop "Radiation Effects on Optoelectronic Detectors" & "Image Sensors Optical Interfaces" Toulouse FR 26-27.11.2014

Einführung in die 3D-Bildmesstechnik und Photogrammetrie Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Thomas Luhmann 27.-28. November 2014 München


Die Teilnehmer erhalten über zwei aufeinander aufbauende Module einen vertieften Einblick zu
1. mathematischen und physikalischen Grundlagen der Photogrammetrie (Transformationen, Ausgleichungsrechnung, Optik, Sensorik),
2. Kalibrierung und Messgenauigkeit (Kamerakalibrierung, Aufnahmeanordnungen, Orientierungsverfahren) sowie  zur photogrammetrischen Bildverarbeitung (Punktmessung, Bildzuordnung). Die Schulungsteilnehmer werden dabei in die theoretischen Grundlagen der Thematik eingeführt, die durch zahlreiche praktische Beispiele und Anwendungen ergänzt werden. Die Teilnehmer erhalten auch die Möglichkeit, eigene Problemstellungen zu diskutieren. Nach dem Kurs sollten die Teilnehmer in der Lage sein, die technischen Grundlagen der Photogrammetrie genauer zu verstehen und Einsatzmöglichkeiten des Verfahrens in ihrem eigenen Arbeitsumfeld besser beurteilen zu können.


Das Schulungsangebot richtet sich an Wissenschaftler und Praktiker mit einem abgeschlossenen Hochschulstudium einer technischen Fachrichtung. Es werden Vorkenntnisse in angewandter Mathematik und Physik sowie in digitaler Bildverarbeitung vorausgesetzt. Die Kurse sind offen für verschiedene Fachrichtungen, z.B. industrielle Qualitätssicherung, Fertigungsmesstechnik, Medizintechnik, Materialwissenschaften, Architektur und Bauingenieurwesen u.v.a.m
