I read the original paper in the Nature Nanotechnology journal. While it's exciting, there are a few problems. First, the absorption gain drops off dramatically around 600 nm, meaning that red sensitivity does not get the same sensitivity boost. More research is needed to either fix that, or sensors will be engineered to have proportionately more red pixels, thus reducing the actual sensitivity gain.

Not to be a wet towel, but add to that at least 5 years from lab to manufacturing...we won't be seeing this technology for a while.
