In a March 21 study published in Nature Photonics, Jinsong Huang and colleagues reveal a crystalline material that is four times more sensitive to X-rays than leading commercial detectors. The material, methylammonium lead tribromide, can detect an X-ray dose about 11 times lower than that required for many medical applications. (3/21/16)
