David W Gardner: Sensor-based gamma correction of a digital camera. Flir Advanced Imaging Systems, Haynes and Boone, September 14, 2010: US07796171 (19 worldwide citation)

The anti-blooming structure of an image sensor is supplied with varying voltages during different integration periods such that charges generated in response to low level light are fully captured, whereas charges generated in response to a bright light spill over in a controlled manner. Accordingly, ...

Henry A Hill, David W Gardner: Alignment metrology and resolution measurement system for imaging arrays. Flir Systems, Haynes and Boone, March 18, 2014: US08675077 (1 worldwide citation)

An alignment metrology and resolution measurement system concurrently determines the alignment of an imaging array in six degrees of freedom relative to an external reference frame, and further determines the resolution of the imaging array. To achieve this, an image of at least three mask patterns ...
