Ultrathin digital camera inspired by Xenos peckii eyes

The visual system of Xenos peckii, an endoparasite of paper wasps, demonstrates distinct benefits for high sensitivity and high resolution, differing from the compound eyes of most insects. Taking their unique features, researchers developed an ultrathin digital camera that emulates the unique eyes of Xenos peckii.

Quantum tricks to unveil the secrets of topological materials

Topological materials produce electron states that can be very interesting for technical applications, but it is extremely difficult to identify these materials and their associated electronic states. A 'crystal' made of light waves can now be used to deliberately drive the system out of equilibrium. By switching between simple and complicated states, the system reveals whether or not it has topologically interesting states.

New T-wave detector uses waves of the electronic sea in graphene

Researchers have created a graphene-based terahertz detector. Their device doubles as a sensitive detector and a spectrometer operating in the terahertz range, and it's also a tool for studying plasmons in two-dimensional materials. All of these things existed before, but they took up a whole optical table. Researchers packed the same functionality into a dozen micrometers.
