New Imaging Device Is Flexible, Flat, and Transparent, Johannes Kepler University Study
Published: Feb 21, 2013
Digital cameras, medical scanners, and other imaging technologies have advanced considerably during the past decade. Continuing this pace of innovation, an Austrian research team has developed an entirely new way of capturing images based on a flat, flexible, transparent, and potentially disposable polymer sheet. The team describes their new device and its possible applications in a paper published February 20 in the Optical Society's (OSA) open-access journal Optics Express.
