Nanotechnologists' New Plastic Can See in The Dark

Infrared-sensitive material five times more efficient converter of solar energy
Imagine a home with "smart" walls responsive to the environment in the room, a digital camera sensitive enough to work in the dark, or clothing with the capacity to turn the sun's power into electrical energy. Researchers at University of Toronto have invented an infrared-sensitive material that could shortly turn these possibilities into realities. In a recently published paper by Professor Ted Sargent of Nortel Networks – Canada Research Chair in Emerging Technologies at University of Toronto's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and his team report on their achievement in tailoring matter to harvest the sun's invisible rays...
