Photons, the fleeting particles of light, are the communicators of the universe. They let us still see the remnants of the Big Bang, and are instrumental in carrying the information load of the internet at blazing speeds. They are also our most sensitive fine-toothed probe in both space and time into the world around us, from radio astronomy to microscopic biological imaging and semiconductor chip fabrication.

Today, novel light-sensing modalities help us discover new biological phenomena, empower vision for driverless cars, and facilitate recognition of human activities without violating individuals’ privacy. Tomorrow’s technology will allow us to “see” through walls and measure heart-rate without contact. These advances are made possible by integrating novel sensing materials, optoelectronic devices and computational algorithms. Continue…
