The final program of IEEE Topics on Microelectronics (ToM) Courses 2017 at University of Pavia - Pavia (Italy), has been announced:

The ToM series provides a wide range of focused talks on leading-edge microelectronics topics. IRIS will be there in September 2017, with senior researcher Matteo Perenzoni sharing with you some insights on time-to-digital converters which can be used for sensing applications. We hope to see you there!

IRIS will be at the two CNES workshops in Toulouse, "Radiation Effects on Optoelectronic Detectors" (16/11), and "Photon Counting, Low Flux and High Dynamic Range Optoelectronic Detectors" (17/11) presenting the latest advances in single-photon detectors and imagers.

16/11, 2:55pm: Irradiation Tests on CMOS Digital Silicon Photomultipliers for Ranging Applications
M. Perenzoni, D. Perenzoni, D. Stoppa, C. Virmontois, FBK, CNES

This year, at the leading integrated circuit conference ISSCC in San Francisco, California (1-4 February 2016), IRIS research unit will be there with two papers:

Two letter papers have recently been published by the IRIS group.

A paper on a very small and efficient TDC, suitable for arrayed applications, has been published in Electronics Letters:

M. Perenzoni, H. Xu, D. Stoppa, 'Small area 0.3 pJ/conv, 45 ps time-to-digital converter for arrays of silicon photomultiplier interfaces in 150 nm CMOS', Electronics Letters, 2015

while the following letter is the result of a fruitful cooperation with CNR-NEST in Pisa:

The Researchers' Night 2015, held on the 25th of September, was a great success!

We really would like to thank the hundreds of you who visited our booth and got excited together with us about science! It has been really a wonderful experience also for us in getting in touch with all of you.

Stay tuned as we won't miss the chance to grab your attention even more at the next event!

The 3rd Harvest Imaging Forum, organized by Albert Theuwissen, will see IRIS group leader, David Stoppa, as speaker.

David shall talk about “3D Imaging with Time-of-Flight : Solid-State Devices, Circuits and Architectures”, in Voorburg (The Hague), The Netherlands. The forum will be held in December 2015.

Mark it in your agenda!

The IRIS team would like to thank the participants of the tutorial on 3D imaging held by David Stoppa, and who attended the demo session plus the oral presentation of the time-gated single photon imager by Matteo Perenzoni.

This year's ISSCC has been a great event for us, beside being an outstanding conference on its own: the tutorial attendance has been excellent, the demo session busy and rewarding as it should be, and a really crowded room was looking forward to the very interesting papers of the "Sensors and Imagers for Life Sciences" session.


MILA (Miniaturized Imaging Laser Altimeter) is an ESA project aiming at the development of a compact imaging altimeter for the future ESA mission in order to provide a support for the global navigation system in the approach and landing of flying spacecrafts.
