Registration and other information:

CNES, ESA, AIRBUS DEFENCE & SPACE, THALES ALENIA SPACE, SODERN are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract to the 7th “Space & Scientific CMOS Image Sensors” workshop to be held in ESA-ESTEC on November 22 nd and 23rd 2022 within the framework of the Optics and Optoelectronics COMET (Communities of Experts).

The aim of this workshop is to focus on CMOS image sensors for scientific and space applications.

Although this workshop is organized by actors of the Space Community, it is widely open to other professional imaging applications such as Machine vision, Medical, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and Broadcast (UHDTV) that boost the development of new pixel and sensor architectures for high end applications.

Furthermore, we would like to invite Laboratories and Research Centres which develop Custom CMOS image sensors with advanced smart design on-chip to join this workshop.


Abstracts shall preferably address one or more of the following topics:

  • Pixel design (low lag, linearity, FWC, MTF optimization, high quantum efficiency, large pitch pixels)
  • Electrical design (low noise amplifiers, shutter, CDS, high speed architectures, TDI, HDR)
  • On-chip ADC or TDC (in pixel, column, …)
  • On-chip processing (smart sensors, multiple gains, summation, corrections)
  • Electron multiplication, avalanche photodiodes
  • Photon-counting, quanta image sensors
  • Time resolving detectors (gated, time-correlated single-photon counting)
  • Hyperspectral architectures
  • Materials (thin film, optical layers, dopant, high-resistivity, amorphous Si)
  • Processes (backside thinning, hybridization, 3D stacking, anti-reflection coating)
  • Optical design (micro-lenses, trench isolation, filters)
  • Large size devices (stitching, butting)
  • CMOS image sensors with recent space heritage (in-flight performance)
  • High speed interfaces
  • Focal plane architectures
