New Atomically Thin Material That Improves the Efficiency of Light-Based Tech: Solar Panels, Cameras, Biosensors

[ad_1] Researchers from Penn Engineering have now demonstrated a method for fabricating large-area “superlattices” — layered structures containing 2D lattices of sulfur and tungsten — that can achieve light-matter coupling. Cameras, solar panels, biosensors, and fiber optics are technologies that rely on photodetectors, or sensors that convert light into electricity. With the shrinking size of […]

Miniature Wide-Angle Camera Created With Array of Metalenses Could Fit Into Smartphones

[ad_1] Traditional high-quality wide-angle camera lenses are large. New design could enable high-quality wide-angle cameras that can possibly fit into smartphones. Researchers have designed a new compact camera that acquires wide-angle images of high-quality using an array of metalenses — flat nanopatterned surfaces used to manipulate light. By eliminating the bulky and heavy lenses typically […]
