InVisage design has announced that its engineers are working to perfect an innovative technology that could improve photo quality on camera-ready cell phones, TechNewsWorld reports.

While typical camera phones use silicon to captures pictures, the company's QuantumFilm system includes dot-based image sensors that could provide up to four times the performance of typical phone cameras.

In addition, company officials say that the technology could enable smartphone users to take pictures from twice the distance that they can now.

The system works by using quantum dots, which are semiconductors that capture light and translate it into a digital signal. While silicon typically captures about 25 percent of the light that comes through a camera lens, the dots are expected to hold between 90 and 95 percent of it, according to the news source.

While InVisage is currently planning to implement this technology in smartphones, company officials told the media outlet that it could also be useful for professional photography in the future.

Representatives also said that cell phone users will not have to pay extra for devices that include this technology, Wired reports.
