Happy Accident Opens Door to Cheaper, Higher-Resolution Cameras

LOS ANGELES — Scientific accidents have brought some of the most groundbreaking discoveries — vulcanized rubber, X-rays, penicillin — and now scientists at UCLA have accidentally discovered a material that could make digital cameras as we know them obsolete.

Graduate student Hsiang-Yu Chen was working on a new formula for solar cells when something went wrong. Instead of creating electricity when hit with light, the conductivity of the material she was working with changed.

"The original purpose [was] to make a solar cell more efficient," says Chen. "However, during the research we found the solar cell phenomenon [had] disappeared." Instead, the test material showed high gain photoconductivity, indicating potential use as a photo sensor.

Thanks to this lucky mistake, a new breed of camera sensors that are cheaper, higher-resolution and have lower distortion could be on the horizon.

一場幸運的意外, 打開了便宜高畫質照相機之門

洛杉磯 - 科學上的意外為人類帶來最具開創性的發現-硫化橡皮、X光、青黴素-而現在加州大學UCLA的科學家也意外地發現一種可能淘汰現有數位相機的原料。

研究所學生陳翔玉(譯)正在研究太陽能電池的新配方的同時,出了意外。她使用的原料在受光時並沒有產生電力,而原料的傳導性卻改變了。

陳說:「原本的用意是要讓太陽能電池更有效率。但是在研究的過程中,我們發現太陽能電池的蓄電現象已經消失了。」取而代之的是,測試原料表現了高光電導性,很有可能應用為影像感應器。

多虧這次幸運的意外,新一代更便宜、高畫質和低失真的數位相機感應器可望近期出現。
