"... covers the basic principles of image sensors from semiconductor devices to sensor physics to image processing fundamentals. Each new concept is presented in a clear manner and the text is elegant, with the author giving essential details and generous insights without adding excessive details. I highly recommend this publication to engineers and applied physicists. Although the subject matter is very technical, it would also be of interest to graduate students."
-Professor Christian Brosseau, Universite de Bretagne Occidentale, Brest, France, from Optics & Photonics News, February 2015
"The main strength of this book is the breadth of the covered material- from basic semiconductor device and sensor physics to specifics of various types of image sensors, image processing fundamentals, and imaging systems performance. Thus, this book is useful to anyone who wishes to learn the basics of various aspects of image sensors."
-Maxim Ershov, Silicon Frontline Technology, Campbell, California, USA
"... unmatched by any other book in describing techniques for building competitive CMOS image sensors. ... fundamentally grounded in sampling theory."
-Tobi Delbruck, Institute of Neuroinformatics, University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, Switzerland
"... a good general resource for digital imaging technologists. ... The author is clearly an expert in the field and has assembled a practical review of this technology."
