This letter develops an optical pixel sensor that is based on hydrogenated amorphous silicon thin-film transistors. Exploiting the photo sensitivity of the photo TFTs and combining different color filters, the proposed sensor can sense an optical input signal of a specified color under high ambient illumination conditions. Measurements indicate that the proposed pixel sensor effectively reacts to the optical input signal under light intensities from 873 to 12,910 lux, proving that the sensor is highly reliable under strong ambient illumination.
