Micro lenses

Microlensses are usually placed on top of the color filter array on certain sensors of digital cameras, their principal role being to overcome the limitation of a low fill factor. Microlenses are also used in order to funnel the photons of a larger area into a smaller area of light sensitive photodiode. Microlenses are small […]

Fill Factor

Fill factor, in the context of solar cell technology, is defined as the ratio (given as percent) of the actual maximum obtainable power, (Vmp x Jmp) to the theoretical (not actually obtainable) power. In the context of photography and cameras, the fill factor indicates the size of the light sensitive photodiode relative to the surface […]
