Re: thanks for that clarification

Correct, that is Tom's chinese name. In my opinion, Tom was the key CCD technologist at Kodak until he retired about 10 years ago. Paul Lee and Russell Gee (from JPL) did most of the layout work - Paul on the pixel and Russell on the surrounding circuits. We reported the first CMOS APS using a pinned photodiode at the 1995 IEEE Workshop on CCDs and Image Sensors in a joint JPL/Kodak paper. Kodak did almost nothing with the technology but did some tech transfer to Motorola in a short lived 3-way collaboration with Photobit. Photobit did sensor design, Motorola did wafer fab. It is a shame Kodak did not move more quickly or efficiently. They could have been way ahead of the rest of the world. Sigh. Natural selection I guess. But, a nice bunch of guys at Kodak and a pleasure to work with.
