It's easy to forget, but most of the world is invisible to us. I do not mean things are small or metaphorically. No, most of the world are literally invisible.
For this reason, as we call it visible, the electromagnetic spectrum is much smaller. The waves continue to see the islands, such as high-energy gamma and ultraviolet radiation and infrared and radio waves.
There are not many missing. But U.S. and a Chinese research team has seen the pathways that do not see the infrared light wave in these invisible ones, with no desire or sufficient equipment. When using infrared photo nanoparticles, he has given them mice to see the visible spectra seen.
The concept is pretty easy. Scientists used nanoparticles to collect two infrared light infrared eyes in a single photon. As a result, infrared photons (read and energy) with a wavelength of 980 nanometers are translated with photos of 535 nanometric wavelengths that sits around the green part of the visible spectrum. The infrared light turned the light into the eyes. Green planning, indeed.
Nanoparticles are proteins that help to bond with photoreceptors, where mice are injected into the retina. There, in front of our eyes, rods and cones converge through neurons.
After reviewing the mice, the researchers tried to see how they reacted in a new and widespread world. The first attempt was to control student contraction against infrared light, which confirmed that their photoreceptors were receiving nanoparticle signals.
Then, it was placed in a single configuration box connected by a portal. The box was dark and the other was illuminated with infrared light. As a normal mouse priority, mice with nanoparticles choose consistently the dark box. However, the mice with no nanoparticles lacked the box, because the infrared was only clear, the boxes were in the dark.
The more tests showed that the mice did not see infrared lights, because their perception was enough to distinguish the infrared illumination. To this end, the researchers began a simple maze of water test to find the hidden platform of the mice. The location of the platform was given through a triangle that switches on a circle or infrared, and the mouse was able to find exact looks.
They also confirmed that nanoparticles did not even have the ability to see the normal light rats and the infrared illumination conditions. In addition, researchers found that nanoparticle injuries did not find an unpleasant side effect. The sight of the mouse was not disturbed, the swelling was low and nanoparticles after a few weeks werehed their eyes.
Researchers publish the results in the journal Handheld.
So, probably, now we think the same thing. Predator mice were made!
Foreign qualifications have a hot focus, and the hot focus is infrared, right? Well, kind. The author of the Gang Han writer of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, despite the fact that the comparison is accurate, is a functional problem. Actually, two of them. One, nanoparticles researchers received a photophone of infrared photons only in a given wave, infrared very near. The heat signatures provide smaller photos with less power, as far as nanoparticles are concerned. As they say, nanoparticles with heat signatures are technically possible, but they have not yet been developed.
There is another problem with heat from the heat, it is heat mammalian blood. Although it has the ability to receive infrared wavelength infrared, the eyes would be inundated with the heat photo of our body. So, do we mean noise by seeing nothing through static infrared? I'm sorry, bodyhackers.
In addition to dreams of science fiction, there are some real applications for such technology, he says. Nanoparticles may adhere to our photorexits that one day may be able to deal with non-visual problems, he says, as well as medication within our eyes. We also believe that a similar technology could be greater than the more photons seen than the energy seen, because the light had the ability to see the ultraviolet spectrum light.
The mouse and the human eyes are quite similar, so nanoparticles are likely to work without human changes, he says. The procedure was not accepted by the FDA, of course, but the type of injection used is already common, and the nanoparticles themselves do not cause any harm to the mice. (As he himself says, "if he spells my spouse …)")
Increased vision of the infrared wind capacity would not allow prey to rocks from forests, but we can open our world in a different way. It adds the vision of new light waves to common views, for example, or the pre-circulating things may appear in invisible waves.
Stargazing would never be the same. There are those that emit infrared photons all over the time – astronomers often use infrared light to observe the universe.
Making our eyes to the night sky would be a completely new experience. The stars and galaxies previously invisible seemed to be clear, so our electromagnetic transmissions could reach our naked eyes. It would be a new vision of the universe, a step, however small, beyond the boundaries of our biological senses.
