Camera brings unseen world to light

Researchers have developed a highly compact, portable camera that can image polarization in a single shot. The miniature camera -- about the size of a thumb -- could find a place in the vision systems of autonomous vehicles, on board planes or satellites to study atmospheric chemistry, or be used to detect camouflaged objects.
