Develop camera sensor made of graphene thousand times more sensitive to light

Develop camera sensor made of graphene thousand times more sensitive to light

In Singapore, researchers at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) led by Professor Wang Qijie have developed a new application for graphene; for cameras, adding to the wide range of benefits that this new material could give us in the future .

Remember that the is located behind the lens and get the light entering the device, and this new sensor developed from a thousand times more sensitive to light than current technology based on or CCD, while tenfold consumes less energy and would be five times cheaper to mass-produce than their predecessors. No need to get lost.

And the graphene sheet used to create the sensor is created only carbon atoms, so it would be easy and inexpensive to produce. Moreover, its atomic structure honeycomb allows capture and retain a broad spectrum light, and is useful even in infrared cameras.

With all this in mind it is easy to imagine new applications for new technology. And although researchers are thinking first industrial cameras, surveillance or satellites, we now expect new graphene sensors reach the general consumer market through mobile phones, compact and professional cameras, revolutionizing the industry photography.
