South Korean image-sensing chip enables 1-lux photography

Abstract:
Technology Institute has announced a new image sensor chip that promises to take "vibrant photos" in extreme low-light conditions -- all the way down to 1 lux, which is the equivalent light output of a candle shining one meter away. Details are scarce, but the "single carrier modulation photo detector" chip is said to use some amount of nanotechnology and reportedly cost $10.5 million to develop. We haven't heard when the chip might hit the market, but the Korean government is expecting to make 2 trillion won ($2.1 billion) a year exporting this little guy in the future. We'd put our money on the home team, of course -- expect to see Samsung or LG release no-light cameras before the rest of the pack.
