Army researchers have developed a new microwave radiation sensor that’s said to have 100,000 times higher sensitivity than currently-available commercial sensors.

The new microwave radiation sensor, which is a microwave bolometer, is claimed to lead to “significant improvements” in thermal imaging, radio communications, and electronic warfare say the Army researchers who published their work in the journal Nature.

“The microwave bolometer developed under this project is so sensitive that it is capable of detecting a single microwave photon, which is the smallest amount of energy in nature,” said Dr. Joe Qiu of the Army Research Office.
