TIme-gating technique for a single-photon detection-based time-of-flight 3D range imager

This thesis is concerned with the development of circuit techniques for a solid-state 3D range imager. In the 3D range imager developed in this work, range is measured by sending short laser pulses which time-of-flights are detected by miniaturized single-photon pixels. The sensor is manufactured in standard CMOS-technology. An algorithm which controls the sensor array and produces the range images in real time was also developed. The integrated sensor developed in this work paves the way to miniaturized, cost-effective solid-state 3D range imagers.
