Night vision contact lenses may be the stuff of science fiction movies, but new research points the way to how we could some day see in the dark with our own eyes. Electrical Engineers at the University of Michigan have found a new way to sense infrared light using two layers of an atom-thick layer of carbon, known as graphene. The researchers, Ted Norris and Zhaohui Zhong, faced a major hurdle with graphene: it just isnt very sensitive to light. That produces an electrical signal that can display a night vision image.
