Nikon hasn't published any technical details about the PDAF on sensor AFAIK.

I've seen some hints that this Patent 2010-243772 could be one of the techniques used in the N1 sensors, but I really don't know if this is relevant at all.

Here is a non-technical Nikon article about the Nikon 1 autofocus.
