Quantum Film Might Replace CMOS Sensors

March 22nd, 2010 03:22 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader writes “Quantum film could replace conventional CMOS image sensors in digital cameras and are four times more sensitive than photographic film. The film, which uses embedded quantum dots instead of silver grains like photographic film, can image scenes at higher pixel resolutions. While the technology has potential for use in mobile phones, conventional digital cameras would also gain much higher resolution sensors by using quantum film material.” The original (note: obnoxious interstitial ad) article at EE Times adds slightly more detail.
