As you may already know that the Netherlands is one country in the world that has a long history in renewable energy, examples of which can be seen with certainty is that the famous Dutch Windmills.

The position of some of their territory is below sea level which makes them have to innovate in order not to sink, and the results were successfully created the Dutch windmill technology that addition can be used to pump sea water out in order to form a new, more extensive land (polders) and can be used as well as auxiliary facilities in agriculture and industry.

An inexpensive optical devices that inspired the design of the fly’s eye opens the door for the development of new imaging devices in medicine (medical imaging device). Benefit from the use of magnetic imaging devices in the examination and treatment in medicine is not in doubt. Israeli scientists are now developing a new device in this field. They hope that this tool, which is still under development, will provide more benefits than they are today. This advantage is lower cost than the imaging technology used in devices that already exist. Therefore, if this project becomes a reality, people will have the opportunity to review their health using imaging tools (scan) this more often.

So that light can be utilized in the field of medical imaging, photons (particles of light) emitted by the small amount of the object the (body) which is being imaged must be recognized. This is a constraint that owned the tools that already exist. Body tissues that cover the object being imaged causes noise in the image by blurring the light.
