To investigate the feasibility of a compact FEA image sensor with a large number of pixels, a 128 96 pixel FEA image sensor with a 4-µm-thick HARP target was fabricated and tested for the first time. The experimental results showed that the prototype could stably operate as a highly sensitive image sensor having both sufficient resolution corresponding to the number of pixels and a wide dynamic range, which demonstrated its potential as a next-generation image sensor.
