Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Seeing infrared: Sandia’s nanoantennas help detectors see more heat, less noise

Newswise image Sandia National Laboratories researchers developed tiny, gold antennas to help cameras and sensors that "see" heat deliver clearer pictures of thermal infrared radiation for everything from stars and galaxies to people, buildings and items requiring security. The new nanoantenna-enabled detector can boost the signal of a thermal infrared camera by up to three times and improve image quality by reducing dark current, a major component of image noise, by 10 to 100 times.
