Foveon physics re-defined?
13

"The 3 layers 1:1:1 sensor technique can be implemented differently. <> Rearranging the matrix to have RG top layer, all B 2nd layer and a 3rd layer purely mono to increase DR and noise mapping"

Quoted from the 149th post here, hence this new thread:

Apparently the basic physics can be just turned upside-down and the fundamental properties of silicon completely ignored. The Foveon principle is not easy to understand but gross misinformation such as is in the above quote is should have no place here.
