Seeing In The Dark With Novel Infrared Remote Sensing System
2013-10-29 14:33:32

American Institute of Physics Thermal infrared (IR) energy is emitted from all things that have a temperature greater than absolute zero. Human eyes, primarily sensitive to shorter wavelength visible light, are unable to detect or differentiate between the longer-wavelength thermal IR "signatures" given off both by living beings and inanimate objects. While mechanical detection of IR radiation has been possible since Samuel Pierpont Langley invented the bolometer in 1880, devices that also...

2013-02-20 16:49:11

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Imaging sensors are typically rigid and opaque, but a team of scientists from Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria has developed a new imager based on“¯a flat, flexible, transparent and potentially disposable polymer sheet. "To our knowledge, we are the first to present an image sensor that is fully transparent — no integrated microstructures, such as circuits — and is flexible and scalable at the same...

Cheap, Efficient Sensor Could Revolutionize Airport Security
2013-01-18 12:57:32

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Duke University Engineers have developed a sensor for technologies like airport security scanners that is more efficient, versatile and cheaper. The team fabricated a material, known as a metamaterial, that acts as a lens to image scenes using fewer components than conventional detectors. The properties of this material make it require less equipment than conventional detector sensors. The material is a thin laminate with...
