The alternative approach - followed by several firms - is to use a combination of a silicon-based readout chip and an external photodiode replacing the silicon one.
In the existing pixel structure, metal grids are formed over the photodiodes to reduce interference between the pixels, which can also lead to some optical loss as metals tend to reflect and/or absorb the incoming light.
(Nasdaq: AAOI), a provider of fiber-optic access network products for the internet datacenter, cable broadband, fiber-to-the-home and telecom markets, has announced the successful development of 100 Gigabits per second (Gbps) PIN photodiode (PD) arrays for high-speed optical receivers, the company said.
The following decade, Nobukazu Teranishi invented the modern pinned photodiode, which reduced the size of light-capturing 'pixels' and significantly improved the quality of images.

To the best of our knowledge, there are no accessible reports related to photodiode applications of the ZnO-NRs films deposited by MW-CBD.
The new IR Topled D5140 photodiode from Osram Opto Semiconductors requires considerably less PC board space than before, allowing for more compact sensors to be embedded in a design.
Osram Opto Semiconductors' SFH 2440 L photodiode saves on mounting height in the design of heart rate sensors.
It includes two detectors: one 512 element UV-enhanced silicon photodiode array and one 256 element TE-cooled extended InGaAs photodiode array.
Camarillo, CA, December 18, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Opto Diode (www.optodiode.com), an ITW company, introduces the SXUV300C photodiode with a large, 22.05 mm x 15.85 mm rectangular active area.
For example errors of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) sensors--the photodiodes are defined by large individual deviations of their conversion functions (CF) from nominal values and those errors are strongly dependent on the temperature coefficient of photodiode.
There are several basic methodologies that are in use for sun sensors, including the use of Position-Sensitive Photodiodes (PSD), linear and grid sensor arrays such as CCDs and photodiode arrays, and the measurement of sunlight on solar panels used for power.
