The Next Generation of Night Vision Glasses
December 21, 2012
Imagine a thin coating that could turn any pair of glasses into night vision glasses using invisible infrared light.
BGU Prof. Gabby Sarusi
BGU Prof. Gabby Sarusi recently received a major grant from the Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative (INNI) to develop this futuristic technology.
Unlike cumbersome and expensive night vision systems, Prof. Sarusi and his team are developing a one-micronthick "smart layer" to coat glasses.
"Based on nano-photonics technologies, it would shift invisible light to visible rays and would be like looking around at full moonlight," says Prof. Sarusi.
After more than 17 years working on electrooptics in the private sector, Prof. Sarusi recently joined BGU as a member of the University’s Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology and Homeland Security Institute.
