An organic photodetector with natural rhythm
An organic photodetector that is extremely sensitive in the visible and near-infrared range has been developed by researchers at the Nanochemistry Laboratory of the Institute of Supramolecular Science and Engineering, in collaboration with Tsinghua University and Shenzhen University (China). A first application of this has been produced in the field of health monitoring. This new technology is of particular interest in numerous fields such as motion detection, water and food quality control, biomedical imagery and health and environmental monitoring. The results have recently appeared in the journal Nature Communications.
