Graphene Light Detector Spans IR Spectrum

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
A new light detector is the first to sense the full IR spectrum, carrying potential advancements in heat-vision technology. The room-temperature, graphene-based detector, developed by a team at the University of Michigan, can be made thin enough to be stacked on a contact lens or integrated with a cellphone. “If we integrate it with a contact lens or other wearable electronics, it expands your vision,” said researcher Zhaohui Zhong, an assistant professor at the university. “It provides you another way of interacting with your environment.” The detector...Read full article
