Photography and video editing in the absence of light has been made possible through nanotechnology by a team of SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) scientists. By the development of ultrathin "nanosheets" it can change the way we use cell phone cameras, video cameras or even MRI machines.
