Nano drives improve displays

Display technology is currently realizing the benefits of nanotechnology in lighting support for the displays and the display construction itself.

Display technology is currently realizing the benefits of nanotechnology in lighting support for the displays and the display construction itself. One of the new display technologies is the Mirasol display from Qualcomm. This MEMS (microelectromechanical-system)-on-glass device targets low-power, daylight-readable color displays for portable-system applications.

Most LCD devices operating at low power, such as with mobile phones and tablet PCs, have issues with color representation. In varying light, the color accuracy of the display changes, altering the viewer’s perception of the image. The Mirasol display attempts to overcome these issues.

The display is a front-reflective display rather than a traditional backlit display. The properties of nanoscale materials combine with advanced MEMS-processing techniques, allowing the display to mimic naturally occurring phenomena. The display works by creating a color from an interference pattern on the reflected light that hits the top of the display. This process is the same one that makes a butterfly’s wing shimmer and display different colors.
