About this book

The acquisition and interpretation of images is a central capability in almost all scientific and technological domains. In particular, the acquisition of electromagnetic radiation, in the form of visible light, UV, infrared, X-ray, etc. is of enormous practical importance. The ultimate sensitivity in electronic imaging is the detection of individual photons. With this book, the first comprehensive review of all aspects of single-photon electronic imaging has been created. Topics include theoretical basics, semiconductor fabrication, single-photon detection principles, imager design and applications of different spectral domains. Today, the solid-state fabrication capabilities for several types of image sensors has advanced to a point, where uncoooled single-photon electronic imaging will soon become a consumer product. This book is giving a specialist´s view from different domains to the forthcoming “single-photon imaging” revolution. The various aspects of single-photon imaging are treated by internationally renowned, leading scientists and technologists who have all pioneered their respective fields.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Single-Photon Imaging is part of the prestigious Springer Series in Optical Sciences and is dedicated to single-photon imaging, a hot topic in optics. The book is clearly written and has striking photos and figures. Each of the fourteen chapters is authored by a famed specialist. … This book should be read by everyone interested in optical imaging.” (Daniela Dragoman, Optics & Photonics News, March, 2012)
