New type of imaging device gets patented.

Compressive sensing’ takes a different approach to capturing and recording images to traditional methods, by using a spatial light modulator and only a single or very small number of detector diodes, as opposed to the millions of pixel sensors in CMOS or CCD sensors found in todays digital cameras and mobile phone cameras.

The emerging technology has now been patented by Rice University and licensed exclusively to InView Technology, who will first use it to build cameras able to see through impairments such as fog, haze, smoke and dust. The cameras will be capable of operating in the in the ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and terahertz frequency ranges.

Initial uses for the cameras are likely to be in areas such as security, surveillance, and maritime navigation.

    Excellent! After traditional photography and development, the concept of pixels bothers me a bit….
