Several technologies, such as X-ray, ultrasound, CT and MRI, allow us to see through surfaces. But now, a new light-based technology developed in Israel could take us one step further.
Instead of using a large x-ray machine, and potentially being exposed to radiation, we can now see through semi-opaque surfaces using only a smartphone. Developed at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, this new light technology allows us to see through surfaces by analyzing the scattering of the light.
This preliminary research could in the future revolutionize science by enabling better microscope images, but could also help in diagnosing diseases in a noninvasive way, since our skin is considered a semi-opaque surface.
