InVisage envisions a world where cell phone cameras don't suck, embraces quantum dots

The invention of nanocrystal semiconductors — extra generally referred to as quantum dots — has spurred scientists to create the whole lot from exactly-coloured LED lamps to greater-density flash reminiscence. There’s additionally been some speak of making use of an answer of the tiny crystals to create larger sensitivity cameras, and in response to an organization named InVisage, that latter utility is nearly prepared for business manufacturing. By smearing mild-amplifying quantum dots onto the prevailing CMOS sensors utilized in cellphone cameras like a lot strawberry jam, InVisage claims it should supply smartphone sensors which have 4 occasions the efficiency and twice the dynamic vary of present chips by the top of the yr, and roll out the conveyor belts in late 2011, simply in time for the contract to finish in your horrible new cameraphone.
