Abstract
LightSpin Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop a broadband photodetector technology with high quantum efficiency and low noise spanning the wavelength range of 200 -- 2500 nm. LightSpin's unique approach enables full darkness-to-daylight operation with single photon sensitivity, more than 20 bits of dynamic range, automatic gain control and suppression of saturation and blooming effects. The approach readily scales to megapixel focal plane arrays and enables spectral binning with minimal signal loss.
