Abstract

2D detector systems are amongst the most important tools of science and technology. Myriads of particular applications of the systems in medicine, industry, earth and space exploration or basic research generate specific technical problems in the subject.

Recent rapid progress in electronic circuitry, mechanics on the micro- and nanoscale, and design of new materials has a direct impact on development of 2D detector systems. They are becoming more and more sophisticated, resembling, in some cases, the complexity of the natural solutions formed evolutionary in biological systems.

Main aim of the present lecture is to discuss the question of relations between "state of the art" in 2D detectors and the natural vision systems.
