Photonic Detection (PD)

This group involves the detection of photons as received from images, data links, and experimental spectroscopic studies to mention a few. Within its scope, it is involved in the design, fabrication, testing of single and arrayed detectors. Detector materials, structures, and readout circuitry needed to translate photons into electrical signals are considered by this group. Also included in this group is the integration of components such as lens, cold shields, and readout electronics into cameras. Research into higher efficiency, lower noise, and/or wavelength tunability is included here. Additionally, techniques to mitigate noise and clutter sources that degrade detector performance are within the purview of this group. In the imaging area, camera design, componentry, and circuitry are considered.

The Photonic Detection Technical Group will be hosting a special event at this year's Frontiers in Optics. We hope you will join the group on Monday, 19 October, at 12:00 for theFrontiers in Photonic Detection Panel Discussion.

This event will feature talks from Sasan Fathpour, Varun Verman, and Supriyo Bandyopadhyay. Following their presentations, attendees will be invited to participate in a group discussion moderated by the chair of the technical group, Shayan Garani Srinivasa. Lunch will be provided; please RSVP to to attend.

Join us at the OSA Light, Energy and Environment Congress in Suzhou, China! Submit your postdeadline paper by 14 October 2015, 12:00 EDT.

Minutes from the most recent monthly meeting of the Photonic Detection Technical Group executive committee are now available for group members to view.
