JWST's 'MIRI' sensor
JWST's 'MIRI' sensor is based on an array of arsenic-doped silicon sensors, which need to be cooled to cryogenic temperatures for low-noise operation. In contrast, the developmental graphene-based mid-infrared sensors made by the ICFO-Yale team could operate without the need for cooling. Photo: NASA.
