A technology will make the cameras capture colors that the human eye cannot see

 


The human eye captures images with wavelengths between 400 and 700 nanometers. Below 400 nanometers are ultraviolet rays and above 700 nanometers are infrared rays.

New research from Tel Aviv University will make the cameras recognize colors that the human eye and even ordinary cameras can not perceive.

Technology can capture images of gases and substances such as hydrogen, carbon and sodium where each has unique colors in the infrared spectrum as well as biological compounds found in nature that are invisible to the human eye.

This technology can be applied to computer games, photography, security, medicine and astronomy. The research was conducted by Dr. Michael Mrejen, Yoni Erlich, Dr. Assaf Levanon and Prof. Haim Suchowski.

The human eye captures images with wavelengths between 400 and 700 nanometers. Below 400 nanometers are ultraviolet rays and above 700 nanometers are infrared rays.

Currently the tools for identifying these rays are costly. Yes the new study promises a low cost and efficient technology that can be applied to a standard camera.
