Thinnest-Ever Image Capture May Be Gamechanger for Wearables
The '2D' imaging sensor might also have some surprising applications for medical devices
Right now, wearables that include cameras are limited in their size by the minimum bulk of those devices. But in the near future, that could change, in part thanks to chemical engineers. Graduate student at the Rice University lab of materials Sidong Lei recently synthesized copper indium selenide (CIS)—a single-layer matrix of copper, indium, and selenium atoms.
