A sensor prototype that absorbs light almost optimally

Red-sensitive, blue-sensitive and green-sensitive color sensors stacked on top of each other instead of being lined up in a mosaic pattern – this principle could allow image sensors with unprecedented resolution and sensitivity to light to be created. However, so far, the reality hasn’t quite met expectations. Researchers from Empa and ETH Zurich have now developed a Read more about A sensor prototype that absorbs light almost optimally[…]

AIR CONDITIONING UNIT WITH HAPTIC FUNCTION
