Physics Colloquia Series Presents: Dr. Trevor Cross,Group Chief Technology Officer, e2v, entitled '60 years of imaging technology'

25 October 2016

From the earliest commercial production of electronic image sensors for television in the 1950s, to the diverse application of specialist silicon image sensors for the Hubble space Telescope to digital dentistry this talk will outline the manufacturing technology and changes through 60 years at e2v. Somewhat surprisingly, there are today lessons to be learned, and technologies to be applied from this to the emerging new platform technology of ultra-cold atom sensing and metrology. This talk will also explain the exciting engagement with the Birmingham National Quantum Technology centre in Sensing and Metrology.
