Eric R. Fossum '79, Professor of Engineering Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, will deliver a presentation at Trinity entitled, “Inside Your Camera: The Science and Technology of Digital Image Sensors.”  Fossum invented, developed and commercialized the CMOS image sensor now used in billions of camera phones, webcams, DSLRs, video cameras, swallowable pill cameras, dental xray sensors, and many other applications.  His talk will address some of the basic scientific principles behind today's image sensors, as well as discuss the state of the art of the technology and possible future directions. This seminar, free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Trinity College Department of Engineering.  A reception will follow.
