New Technologies Display Promise

Don't go springing a bundle on that plasma TV just yet. These days, new display technologies are making headlines in rapid succession. For example, researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology are leveraging an "artificial muscle" to produce a tunable diffraction grating for color adjustment. Meanwhile, a group from Cornell is testing micrometer-scale carbon fiber rods for the actuators of micro-electro-mechanical mirrors, such as those used for display engines. On the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) front, Universal Display Corp. and Novaled AG have demonstrated a power efficiency of 12 lm/W and a brightness of 1,000 cd/m² from a saturated red phosphorescent OLED device.
