Abstract
The design of a single integrated lock-in pixel with a logarithmic response for a modulated light camera is described. The sensor has been designed to detect low light levels and can detect modulated light with frequency well above 2 MHz. An n-well photodiode, amplifier, mixer and 150 Hz low-pass filter have been implemented to allow continuous processing of the incident light. The performance of the sensor is demonstrated using an optoacoustic imaging system and tissue phantoms. A 1 MHz ultrasound transducer is used to modulate light scattered through a tissue phantom. An absorbing sphere is scanned through the medium and the improvement in imaging performance provided by ultrasound modulation is demonstrated.
