Researchers at IIT-Bombay have invented a unique smartphone lens. Notes can be identified with the help of this lens. At the same time, those things can also be seen which we cannot see with the naked eye.

Researchers at IIT-Bombay have developed a 'smartphone microscope' that can help identify counterfeit currency notes, study blood cells on slides or even check for contaminants in water. This fabricated lens only needs to be placed on top of the smartphone camera and allows easy viewing of things that are not possible to see with the naked eye.

Helped by Professors of this Department: The lens has been developed by Bhuvaneshwari Karunakaran as part of his PhD research project. Bhuvneshwari has done her PhD project under the guidance of Professors Soumo Mukherjee and Debjani Paul from the Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering at IIT-B.

Silicone elastomers used: A silicone elastomer called polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is used to make lenses. An elastomer has viscoelasticity elements. The tiny lenses created by the researchers could be used for malaria detection, endoscopy, dental tests, etc. The technique used by the researchers was published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics.

Lenses are expensive: Traditional methods of manufacturing fabricated lenses are expensive as they require labor and expensive equipment. Objects of about 1.5 microns in size can be seen with the help of these microscopes.

Can be used in many ways: Professor Mukherjee at IIT-B said that these small lenses can be used in many ways. He said, 'Everything from contaminants in water to micro features on currency notes can be seen with the help of this lens. Karunakaran said these lenses can also be used for endoscopy and sperm count.
