New Ultra-thin Infrared Detector Shows Vast Improvement Over Existing Tech

A group of Texas Engineers created an infrared detector that represents a major step forward compared to what's on the market today. These devices are important for sensing trace amounts of gasses to determine air quality, and they have the potential to improve free-space communication, which involves transmitting data using light through open air instead of fiber-optic cable.
