Physics Nobel Prize honors three for advances in digital imagery

Abstract:
CCDs have made it possible to produce images of weak stars and galaxies. The Hubble Space Telescope uses this technology.

According to Dr. Liu, CCD technology combined with nanoscience and nanotechnology is the reason we have better and cheaper digital cameras-they utilize the same technology.

"When we combine CCD technology with optical fiber technology we now 'see' images instantly worldwide," said Liu.
