Detector Sees Objects Invisible to Naked Eye

A new research could lead to gen-next ultra-thin detector that is capable to see below the surface of bodies, walls and several other objects invisible to naked eyes. According to researchers, the detector could prove beneficial in fields like security, chemical sensing, mobile communications and medical imaging.

Using properties of graphene, pure carbon in the form of a very thin and one atom thick, a prototype detector is able to see an extraordinarily broad band of wavelengths, terahertz waves. Terahertz waves are invisible to human eye. By using graphene's properties, researchers increased the speed of d...
