Hi All

This looks a very interesting product I can't wait to see this used in a DSLR with some good quality lenses.

Many times more sensitive than current camera sensors in low light and using less battery power this could have many applications.

This would be really good if used in night videos with dots of light of supposed ufo's that plague youtube and in turn are posted on here.

Also as there are many keen astro-photographers on here this would be a great way to capture really faint objects with shorter shutter speeds.

Camera buffs will love this. Would this technology transfer over to night-vision glasses? Can it pick up light in environments like the deep interior of caves? And if used on space telescopes, would it assist them in picking up faint objects? Thanks for the thread.

From the OP's source:



The sensor is able to produce clearer images than image sensors in use today, particularly in low-light situations, thanks to the fact it’s able to trap light-generated electrons for longer times than current sensors. In addition, the sensor operates at a low voltage, effectively using 10 times less energy than today’s sensors. Mass produced, they could also be cheaper than sensors today.

“We have shown that it is now possible to create cheap, sensitive and flexible photo sensors from graphene alone. We expect our innovation will have great impact not only on the consumer imaging industry, but also in satellite imaging and communication industries, as well as the mid-infrared applications,” said Wang Qijie.

Looks promising tech.

I must confess, when Graphene and it's potential apps are discussed, i didn't know it could be used in this way.

Interesting is it's ability to be used across a broad light and low light spectrum, especially promising is the IR capabilities.

Could be looking at early hardware for a Gen 4 or 5 night vision, swince it's low power and high spec claims of up to 1000x better than current hardware, this could mean the Graphene tech could be built into everyday, normal looking spectacles, instead of the clunkly, power hungry NV gear currently used.

Interesting tech, thanks OP.

Graphene once again. Another varied use.

The last article was that student who came up with the concept of a capacitor that utilised graphene and could charge your mobile phone in 20 seconds or something.. while that didn't jump out as a breakthrough, it's another use for something that was recently found to be easily produced from a technology that was previously rather awkward.

graphene - raises both eyebrows!

All ATS's should name one of their children Graphene. If they are twins, Graphene and Graphenne. Or Hugo.
