Austrian Researchers Develop Transparent Imager

An Austrian research team has developed an entirely new way of capturing images based on a flat, flexible, transparent, and potentially disposable polymer sheet. The new imager, which resembles a flexible plastic film, uses fluorescent particles to capture incoming light and channel a portion of it to an array of sensors framing the sheet. “To our knowledge, we are the first to present an image sensor that is fully transparent – no integrated microstructures, such as circuits – and is flexible and scalable at the same time,” says Oliver Bimber of the Johannes Kepler University Linz in Austria, “Our system works in the same way [as a computer tomograph], but where CT uses X-rays, our technique uses visible light.” The researchers are now considering attaching their new imager in front of a regular, high-resolution CCD sensor. This would allow recording of two images at the same time at two different exposures. Combining both would yield a high-resolution image with less overexposed or underexposed regions if capturing a high-contrast range.
