The article discusses the technological innovations related to national security. It features an accelerometer which is an electromechanical device that measures acceleration forces. Meanwhile, photoluminescence is made up of crystals which absorbs light from solar and artificial sources and does not require any electricity. The researchers at the University of Illinois and Northwestern University developed an electronic eye that collects light on a curved screen resembling a retina.
