Title: IMAGE SENSORS INCLUDING THOSE PROVIDING GLOBAL ELECTRONIC SHUTTER
Abstract:
Various embodiments include an image sensor providing global electronic shutter having an integrated circuit, a first charge-extracting layer, an optically sensitive layer, and a second hole-extracting layer. In a first mode (the 'on' mode), electrons are extracted via the first charge-extracting layer. In in a second mode (the 'off' mode), the extraction of holes is prevented by the first charge-extracting layer. Other embodiments are disclosed.
