LED Basics

University of Michigan engineers have invented a camera that is no more than one millimeter wide and for work which enough only light energy.

New development of American engineers can become the beginning new the trend for ultra-small and almost invisible imaging devices. This self-charging microscopic camera can be installed anywhere and serve its owner for decades.

To achieve such results researchers succeeded thanks to simultaneous combination of two functions of a photovoltaic cell. As a result, two sensors were placed in a small case, one of which stores energy, and the second records its amount. Insofar as photosensitive diodes may transmit the light received from the outside, the sensors were placed friend under a friend for saving device dimensions.

Invented note that on a bright sunny day, the camera can shoot an image at a frequency of 15 frames per second. When in normal lighting, the camera frequency drops to 7.5 frames per second. but scholars sure to improve indicators frame rate and reduce the required work the amount of light energy is not difficult.
