Film allows for development of low-cost infrared sensors
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Here at Springwise, we have followed a number of developments in nano technology, including a nanosensor that can sniff for food pathogens and a molecular robot. Now, researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev have developed incredibly thin infrared sensors that could one day be used to create ultra-thin night-vision glasses. Professor Gabby Sarusi, of the university’s Unit of Electro-Optical Engineering and the Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology, has developed a film that can read 1,500-nanometer infrared wavelengths, and convert them into images that are visible to the human eye. The film is just half a micron…
