These ultra-thin films could one day turn regular spectacles into night-vision goggles and also revolutionize several sectors, such as autonomous vehicle navigation, optical tomography, and food quality control.

Researchers develop Tech to turn regular glasses into night-visionThe film is thinner than human hair and is made of nanoscale crystals. Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) say the prototype tech could replace the bulky night-vision goggles used by military and law-enforcement officials with a lightweight alternative, and could also make it safer to drive at night or walk home after dark.

‘The nanocrystal film is hundreds of times thinner than a human hair. It can be applied directly to glasses and acts as a filter, allowing us to see in the dark. We have made the invisible visible,’ lead researcher Dr. Rocio Camacho Morales said in a report published on the ANU website.
