MEMS Display Harnesses Ambient Light to Create Color Images

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
SAN DIEGO, June 23, 2015 — A new type of display that uses tiny mirrors instead of light-emitting pixels could reduce screen glare and the amount of energy used by consumer electronics. Based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), the display consists of a thin absorbing material that lets most of the light pass through to a second mirror layer. Interference between the incident and reflected light produces the desired output colors. "We have developed an entirely new way of creating a color display," said John Hong, a researcher at Qualcomm MEMS Technologies Inc., which produced the Marisol display....Read full article
