Holst Centre, imec and Philips demo world’s first curved, plastic photodetector


Products

Researchers from Holst Centre (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), imec (Leuven, Belgium) and Royal Philips (Eindhoven) have produced the first ever prototype of a curved photodetector on a plastic substrate. The breakthrough paves the way for smaller optical and 3D imaging X-ray systems with better, more uniform image quality. A prototype curved X-ray detector has been integrated into a medical cone-beam CT (CBCT) demonstrator that will be presented at the IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference in Atlanta, Georgia on 22 October.
