This paper presents a low-cost technology for the realisation of large-area thin film position-sensitive detectors using the a-Si:H technology. The obtained results are quite promising regarding the application of these sensors to a wide variety of optical inspection systems, such as: machine tool alignment and control; angle measuring; rotation monitoring; surface profiling; medical instrumentation; targeting; remote optical alignment; guidance systems; etc., to which automated inspection control is needed.
