• Revolutionary ‘Spaceplate' Could Eliminate Traditional Camera Lenses

    9 days ago - By Peta Pixel

    Researchers from the University of Ottowa have developed a concept that would reduce the size of lenses by a huge margin and effectively eliminate the size of modern optics if combined with a metalens. The team tackled not lens elements themselves, but instead the space between them.
    The researchers explain that the last few centuries of optical work rely on perfecting and combining lenses to better control optical performance. Building on that, relatively new nanotechnology has allowed for the development of metalenses that have the capability to shrink down optics by a large degree.
    But...
