Nano Fever: New tech allows cheaper and better LCD HD screens

August 28, 2010 by  

It seems technology waits for no man, and that applies to HDTV as well, it appears. Read on to find out why this is the case:

Pixel density enthusiasts, pay close attention, because science is ready to blow your minds — the University of Michigan has developed an LCD technology that can display their logo in a space just nine microns high. By creating a filter made of microscopic metal gratings with differently sized holes just a few hundred nanometers wide, researchers discovered they could precisely capture wavelengths associated to red, green and blue light, producing pixels roughly eight times smaller than those in the iPhone 4′s famous screen, and entire images that could practically fit inside a single dot of Kopin’s microdisplay.
What all that jargon means is clearer and sharper HD imagery at a cheaper price than ever in the long run, which is the ideal situation for companies and consumers alike. It shouldn’t be long for much of this to seep into production models near you.
