Expert Lecture by Sh. H. S. Jatana in the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering

The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering of PEC University of Technology, Chandigarh organized an expert lecture on “Challenges in Development of Photodetectors” on 25th Sept, 2017 in the department seminar room at 2:30 pm. The lecture was delivered by Mr. H S Jatana, Group Head -  Design and Process group, SCL, Dept of Space Mohali. The lecture was well attended by the faculty members and the M. tech and PhD students of ECE department. Mr. Jatana described about the difference between Charged coupled device (CCD) and CMOS Imaging Sensor CIS technology. He also explained the challenges involved in increasing quantum efficiency, reducing dark currents/noise and integrating process issues. He also mentioned about the uniqueness of CIS technology and inherent advantages in low power and possible integration with CMOS logic.   He explained the role of photo-detectors in real time applications.

He explained that SCL has been a pioneer in India to develop CCD process and few products designed for various applications in satellite imagery has been developed. Pictures of real Product developed at SCL was also shown.  Lastly, very briefly he touched the various CMOS process modules being developed, along with design of System on Chip (SoCs) at SCL.

The lecture was highly enlightening particularly for the younger researchers to understand the technological innovations in photonics system.
