The fastest and most responsive and flexible phototransistor has been announced by the researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Those researchers are Jack Ma, the Lynn H. Matthias Professor and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of electrical and computer engineering at UW-Madison, Jung-hun Seo, a fellow researcher. They said this thing will be a huge breakthrough in digital imagining. The researchers described their optic innovation as a highly responsive, sensitive and flexible phototransistor which will inevitably improve digital imaging technology. They are inspired by the mammalian vision, in which the phototransistor will help to enhance images captured in a low-light setting, depends upon electronic light sensors.
In the future, this phototransistor can be used in night vision glasses, smoke detectors, satellites, as well as medical imaging equipment. “Integrated into a digital camera lens, for example, it could reduce bulkiness and boost both the acquisition speed and quality of video or still photos,” claim the researchers. At this moment, the phototransistor we found has a flat form due to the fabrication process, but with the invention of the flexible phototransistor, we can find the flexible device with a better image result in the future.
