A team of scientists lead by the University of Glasgow have been given a grant of nearly half a million pounds ($725,000) to help with the development of nanostructures that could be used on digital imaging sensors. By creating these tiny patterns or structures in the metal film on a CMOS (Complimentary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor) sensor, the sensitivity to light could be improved. That means higher quality images as well as the possibly of improved color discrimination. The project is expected to continue into 2012.
