Micrograph of NIST’s high-resolution camera made of 1,024 sensors that count single photons. The camera was designed for future space-based telescopes searching for chemical signs of life on other planets. The 32 x 32 sensor array is surrounded by pink and gold wires connecting to electronics that compile the data. Credit: V. Verma/NIST
