Joseph Wilder, Walter F Kosonocky: Multiple resolution image sensor. Rutgers The State University, Lerner David Littenberg Krumholz & Mentlik, November 16, 1993: US05262871 (418 worldwide citation)

An image sensor comprised of an array of photo elements (pixels) includes a device for randomly addressing individual pixels and a device for selectively varying the number of pixels which can be read out on any one reading cycle. The random addressing of pixels enables the readout of pixels located ...

Walter F Kosonocky: Charge transfer circuits with dark current compensation. RCA Corporation, Joseph S Tripoli, George J Seligsohn, October 25, 1983: US04412343 (13 worldwide citation)

Dark current compensation is obtained in a charge transfer circuit such as a charge coupled device (CCD) delay line by subtracting from each charge packet, after each predetermined number of shifts of that charge packet, a certain amount of charge. In a preferred form of the circuit, a reference cha ...
