Why is there a high-quality camera in everyone’s smartphone while infrared imagers are still limited to specialty applications?

The answer is the high-throughput, wafer-level fabrication process that’s available for image sensors in the visible range ... but not yet for SWIR imagers.

New breakthroughs by imec will change that picture. And this webinar is your chance to discover them.

Join this webinar on Wednesday December 9, 2020, at 9 AM CET/5 PM JST to find out how:

  • Thin-film photodetectors such as nanocrystals (quantum dots) and organics (polymers and small molecules) enable advances in infrared focal plane arrays.
  • NIR and SWIR image sensors with single-micrometer pixel pitches combine multi-megapixel resolutions with compact form factors.
  • Imec’s route towards high-throughput fabrication of these sensors will lead to lower costs and new market opportunities.


  • ナノ結晶(量子ドット)や有機物(ポリマーや小分子)などの薄膜光検出器は、赤外線焦点面アレイの進歩を可能にします。
  • シングルマイクロメートルの画素ピッチを持つSWIRイメージセンサーは、コンパクトなフォームファクタと数メガピクセルの解像度とを兼ね備えます。
  • これらのセンサーのハイスループット製造に向けたImecの手法は、コスト削減と新しい市場機会につながります。



Dr. Pawel E. Malinowski was born in Lodz, Poland, in 1982. He received his M.Sc.Eng. degree in electronics and telecommunications (thesis on design of radiation-tolerant integrated circuits) from the Lodz University of Technology, Poland, in 2006. In 2011, he received a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the KU Leuven, Belgium (thesis on III-nitride-based imagers for space applications).

Pawel is working at imec since 2005, and in the Large Area Electronics Department since 2011 (currently Sensor & Actuator Technologies). He is Program Manager “Pixel Innovations” and he focuses on disruptive optical sensor technologies, including new types of image sensors enabled by thin-film semiconductor integration. Pawel overlooks the innovation actions, works closely with tech teams, sets the technology roadmaps and prepares go-to-market scenarios.

Pawel has coauthored more than 40 publications and submitted 5 patent applications. He was a recipient of the International Display Workshops Best Paper Award in 2014 and the SID Display Week Distinguished Paper Award in 2018. He co-supervised the work leading to the I-Zone Best Prototype Award at SID2019. Pawel is Member of IEEE and SID, and served on the ODI Committee (Optoelectronics, Displays, and Imagers) of the 64th and 65th IEDM conference.
