A group of researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (University of Wisconsin-Madison Electrical and Computer Engineering), headed by Professor Zheng Qiang (Jack) Ma (Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma) have developed a flexible photosensitive material capable of revolutionizing the field of digital photography. In odnolinzovyh lens cameras of mobile phones while projecting an image sensor for a lot of distortion. In today`s expensive camera lenses, these distortions are offset by a complex system of lenses and prisms. However, the human eye uses only one lens - the lens - and we clearly see, without any distortion. The point is that the retina - our photosensitive sensor is in the form of hemisphere, and the distance from the focus of the lens to any point on the retina is always the same. The idea of the research team of Professor Ma is the establishment of the sensor is the same shape. Using a flexible nanomembrany German scientists succeeded in creating fotosensor in the form of a half cylinder. Currently they are working on creating a sensor in the form of hemispheres. These sensors will make unnecessary the use of sophisticated lenses for high-quality photos.
