Infrared Detector for Night Vision

Infrared Detector for Night Vision

The trick in developing the new highly sensitive, but uncooled infrared detector was engineering the two-dimensional nanomaterial graphene into a material that can carry an electric current. The device is not commercially available but could one day be integrated into...
