Chinese scientists develop a camera that uses quantum physics to take pictures
Scientists at Nanjing University in China have been able to develop a revolutionary camera based on quantum physics, and it can take pictures of objects without the need for light. Unlike conventional lenses, the camera does not rely on the bounces of light particles off objects, as it can take advantage of light that does not touch objects to generate accurate images.
This innovative camera breaks the rules of conventional science..and the secret is in quantum physics..a team of physicists at Nanjing University in China has succeeded in developing a camera that can take pictures, without the need for light..but how? What does that revolutionary camera consist of?
Revolutionary camera components
In general, conventional camera lenses rely on capturing particles of light that bounce off objects to capture images.
Objects that are dimly lit or do not touch a large amount of light do not show up clearly in photos.
The unique innovation takes advantage of non-contact light particles to generate accurate images.
A labyrinth of lenses and mirrors" A table with a set of lenses and mirrors is shown.
With the sign written for each of them, put their names in succession, lenses, mirrors.
The camera is a maze of lenses and mirrors arranged on a table, in a way that allows light to be produced at one end and detected at the other.
A laser beam is shone on one of the crystals, and then the light is transmitted successively to the other lenses until it reaches a small device. To test the camera, the team of scientists photographed an engraved piece of metal.
By shining a laser beam on a mirror, to produce particles of light. The light particles then traveled through the maze of lenses without ever touching the metal piece.
Thanks to quantum physics, those particles hit a detector that records the properties of light, before being used to generate the final image of the coin.
The scientific team sees important uses for this camera in the future, including imaging fragile tissues and cells that change structure when exposed to light.
