These scientists wanted to find a way to understand light better. Light has different properties like intensity, polarization, and wavelength. They wanted to figure out a simpler and more efficient way to measure all these properties at once. They created a special thin film that could help them do this. This thin film could manipulate the light in a way that they could capture all the information they needed in just one shot. They used a special computer program to help them analyze this information. Their method was so effective that it could even outperform other devices designed specifically for measuring light properties. This new approach could be easily added to existing imaging systems, making them more powerful and compact.
