See what this designed nano Crystal can do.

A group of Scientists at the Australian National University (ANU) have designed a nano crystal that can turn darkness into visible light and can be used to create light-weight night-vision glasses.

Speaking from the university, Professor Dragomir Neshev said the new night-vision glasses could replace the cumbersome and bulky night-vision binoculars currently in use. He also said that the nano crystals are so small they could be fitted as an ultra-thin film to normal eye glasses to enable night vision.
The difficult but amazing side of this design is growing a nano semi-conductor on a transparent material, and the team built the device on glass so that light can pass through, which was critical for optical displays.

Apart from using it as night vision glasses, it could also be used to detect counterfeit bank notes, imaging cells for medical applications and holograms.
