in physics Farid Ahmadov said in his presentation that new samples of MSFD photodiodes were produced at the NanoFab Center in South Korea in 2015-2016 on the basis of the device proposed by the SRC.
In the existing pixel structure, metal grids are formed over the photodiodes to reduce interference between the pixels, which can also lead to some optical loss as metals tend to reflect and/or absorb the incoming light.
Every single pixel of the main 12-megapixel sensor contains two photodiodes (semiconductor devices that can convert light into electrical current) - resulting in 24 million photodiodes in total, which is nearly 30 times more than the number of photodiodes of traditional PDAF-enabled sensors of the same resolution.
