We present a CMOS light detector-actuator array, in which every pixel combines a spatial light modulator and a photodiode. It will be used in medical imaging based on acousto-optical coherence tomography with a digital holographic detection scheme. Our architecture is able to measure an interference pattern between a scattered beam transmitted through a scattering media and a reference beam. The array of 16 μm pixels pitch has a frame rate of several kfps, which makes this sensor compliant with the correlation time of light in biological tissues. In-pixel analog processing of the interference pattern allows controlling the polarization of a stacked light modulator and thus, to control the phase of the reflected beam. This reflected beam can then be focused on a region of interest, i.e. for therapy. The stacking of a photosensitive element with a spatial light modulator on the same chip brings a significant robustness over the state of the art such as perfect optical matching and reduced delay in controlling light.
