Graphene Can Now Be Applied to Thermal Imaging Devices

Researchers from MIT have built a chip out of graphene that could be applied to thermal imaging devices.

“Graphene is one of the best-known infrared sensing materials, so the team built a microscopic sensor chip out of the material,” Engadget reported.

“Further graphene was then used to carry the signals and suspend the chip over an air pocket. That eliminated the need for external cooling, normally required by such devices to separate internal heat from the target’s infrared signature,” Engadget added.

According to the study’s co-author, Tomas Palacios, the aim is to improve the resolution so that the technology can be used in everyday devices such as car windshields.
