    An international team of researchers has developed a technology that allows people to see clearly in the dark. The technology is based on nanoscale crystals and has potential applications in defense and safety applications, such as night driving.

    “Our technology is able to transform infrared light, normally invisible to the human eye, and turn this into images people can clearly see — even at a distance,” said lead researcher Rocio Camacho Morales, a postdoctoral fellow in the department of electronic materials engineering at Australian National University (ANU). “We’ve made a very thin film, consisting of nanometer-scale crystals, hundreds of times thinner than a human hair, that can be directly applied…
