Night vision technology is essential on the modern battlefield but is not without its shortcomings. Conventional night vision goggles (NVGs) have been compared… [Read More]

The photons are then converted into electrons and travel down a vacuum-sealed onto a plate studded with millions of tiny holes.
The problem is that this process demands thousands of volts of electricity to generate the number of electrons needed to be effective.
The Australian team's process instead relies on aluminum gallium arsenide nanostructures that do basically the same thing but without the vacuum tubes.
"We managed to fabricate very teeny, tiny structures.
The new process would still require an external energy supply to work, but would need only a fraction of a conventional NVG's power.
