The ultrasensitive eyes of mantis shrimp are the inspiration behind a new kind of optical sensor that is small enough to fit on a smartphone, yet capable of performing hyperspectral and polarimetric imaging. A prototype of the sensor, called the stomatopod-inspired multispectral and polarization sensitive (SIMPOL) sensor, was able to simultaneously register four spectral channels and three polarization channels. By comparison, a CCD sensor may have only three spectral imaging sensors that detect red, green, and blue, and only two polarization channels. Additionally, the SIMPOL prototype...Read full article
