Imaging articles from across Nature Portfolio

Imaging is the visual representation of a subject. Imaging methods may provide a two-dimensional depiction of a surface or a three-dimensional reconstruction, they may use special probes or modalities to track specific molecular features, and they may use invasive or non-invasive means to visualize the internal components of a subject.

    Most light-field sensors — devices that detect the angles of incoming light rays to reconstruct 3D scenes — can detect light only in the ultraviolet and visible wavelength ranges. A newly developed light-field sensor comprising perovskite nanocrystals encodes the angles of incoming visible-light beams and X-rays as different colours.
