CMOS inventor working on a gigapixel sensor that can detect single photons ...


"Hold onto your seats: there may soon be game-changing breakthroughs in image sensors that could take low-light photography to whole new levels. The inventor of the CMOS sensor is working on building a new type of image sensor that packs a billion pixels onto a chip no larger than the sensors used today. What’s more, each of those pixels are designed to detect single photons."
