As you worked in an industry that developed sensors, do you know what the theoretical maximum resolution would be approximately for APS-C and full frame sensors in MP? I suspect it would be smaller than the number of atoms (in millions) across the surface of a sensor.

I didn't work in the industry, and I don't know what the theoretical maximum would be, but, I can tell you that Samsung currently has sensors with .7um pitch. So, if my math is correct, and barring all the other issues that would have to be overcome, this would allow for 1.7GP full frame sensors.

But, what do you mean anyway by theoretical limit? There are limits related to the wavelengths of light to be detected, and by crosstalk/isolation requirements...
