Resonant Nano Particle Scattering Enable Transparent Displays

Resonant Nano Particle Scattering Enable Transparent Displays

Light is a slippery fellow. Stand in a darkened hallway and close a door to a lighted room: Light will sneak through any cracks — it doesn't want to be confined. "Typically, in free space, light will go everywhere," graduate student Chia Wei (Wade) Hsu says. "If you want to confine light, you usually need some special mechanism." [More]
