Can you imagine one day using a telescope as thin as a sheet of paper, or a much smaller and lighter high-performance camera? Or no longer having that camera bump behind your smartphone? In a paper published in Nature Communications, researchers from the University of Ottawa have proposed a new optical element that could turn these ideas into reality by dramatically miniaturizing optical devices, potentially impacting many of the applications in our lives.Can you imagine one day using a telescope as thin as a sheet of paper, or a much smaller and lighter high-performance camera?

The concept of "spaceplate" is a new avenue for manipulating light that could lead to paper thin cameras, telescopes. Can you imagine one day using a telescope as thin as a sheet of paper, or a much smaller and lighter high-performance camera? Or no longer having that camera bump behind your smar
