IMES Lecture Microelectronics

Donnerstag, 29. Feb 2024 , 17:10 - 19:00 Uhr,
OST Campus Rapperswil

Delve into the world of «Photon Counting» at an interesting evening hosted by IMES on February 29, 2024, at OST in Rapperswil-Jona. Experience two presentations by experts and take the opportunity to network. Join us and experience an evening of intellectual exchange.

Dorian Amiet, IMES OST: Time-Correlated Photon Counting 
The Time-Correlated Single Photon-Counting (TCSPC) technique measures rapidly changing low level light intensities by detecting and timing single photons in the picosecond range. Existing TCSPC devices face limitations such as dead time, restricted photon count rates, and bulky electronics. Dorian Amiet presents an innovative TCSPC hardware designed at IMES with cutting-edge technologies, offering unprecedented advantages that overcome the current limitations.

Dr. Fridolin Michel, ams OSRAM: Photon Counting CT Detectors for Medical Imaging
Computed Tomography (CT) has emerged as the foremost medical imaging technique in cancer screening, injury detection and cardiac scans. In the field of CT detector technology photon counting is one of the most promising future directions. This talk introduces the photon counting detector technology and elaborates on the topology and design of a CMOS detector chip that serves as the main platform for next generation CT products at ams OSRAM.

Date: February 29, 2024
Time: 17:10 to 18:30, followed by an aperitif
Location: Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences, Campus Rapperswil-Jona, Building 4

No registration is required.
