hybrid array

Definition: Photo-detector in which each pixel is connected to its own pre-amplifier on the chip. * This allows improved signal/noise ratios (i.e. higher sensitivity) and the pre-processing of the signals. * Modern CMOS sensors take the idea further, and include noise reduction under each pixel too.
