Scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA, have innovated a 4,00,000-pixel superconducting camera capable of capturing extremely weak light signals. The number of pixels of this camera is 400 times more than other cameras of its kind. The superconducting cameras developed earlier had a few thousand pixels, because of which their use was limited. Scientists worked on the obstacles that prevented an increase in the number of pixels and were able to devise this high-resolution superconducting camera. Its applications include capturing images of celestial bodies in space and biomedical imaging.
