Graphene Image Sensor 1000 Times More Sensitive to Light

Graphene Image Sensor 1000 Times More Sensitive to Light

A thousand-fold improvement in light sensitivity to today’s current CMOS or charged-couple device (CCD) image sensors sounds miraculous, but Wang believes that the underlying technology of the graphene sensor has even more room for improvement. “The performance of our graphene sensor," Wang says, "can be further improved, such as the response speed, through nanostructure engineering of graphene, and preliminary results already verified the feasibility of our concept.”
