2013-05-31 04:44:12

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new camera sensor invented by a team at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) will reportedly allow for even clearer low-light images. The new graphene-based sensor is believed to be the first capable of detecting broad spectrum light, from the visible to mid-infrared, with high photoresponse or sensitivity. In other words, this sensor will open up opportunities to take better photos in dim conditions for all sorts of applications,...

Star Formation -- Star formation is the process by which gas in molecular clouds gets transformed into stars. In the current paradigm of star formation, cores of molecular clouds (regions of specially high density) became gravitationally unstable, and start to concentrate. Part of the gravitational energy lost in the process is radiated in the infrared, another part increases the temperature of the core. The accretion of material happen partially though a circumstellar disc. When...

Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...
