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.
Frontiers in Photonic Detection Panel Discussion
The Photonic Detection Technical Group organized a special event at Frontiers in Optics exploring new directions in the field. Held on 19 October 2015, the Frontiers in Photonic Detection Panel Discussion featured presentations by Supriyo Bandyopadhyay of Virginia Commonwealth University as well as Varun Verma and Brian Simonds from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
The following presentations from the Frontiers in Photonic Detection Panel Discussion are now available online:
