Seeing infrared: Sandia’s nanoantennas help detectors see more heat, less noise

Sandia National Laboratories

Sandia National Laboratories researchers developed tiny, gold antennas to help cameras and sensors that “see” heat deliver clearer pictures of thermal infrared radiation for everything from stars and galaxies to people, buildings and items requiring security. The new nanoantenna-enabled detector can boost the signal of a thermal infrared camera by up to three times and improve image quality by reducing dark current, a major component of image noise, by 10 to 100 times.

Laser-Based Ultrasound Approach Provides New Direction for Nondestructive Testing

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Many industrial buildings rely on ultrasound instruments that continually monitor the structural integrity of their systems without damaging or altering their features. One new technique draws on laser technology and candle soot to generate effective ultrasonic waves for nondestructive testing and evaluation.
