Color pixels made of nanowires offer new paradigm for digital cameras
New LED packaging technology improves performance
Quantum-dot technology makes LCD TVs more colorful, energy-efficient
If LCD TVs start getting much more colorful—and energy-efficient—in the next few years, it will probably be thanks to MIT spinout QD Vision, a pioneer of quantum-dot television displays.
Biomimetic photodetector 'sees' in color
(Phys.org) —Rice University researchers have created a CMOS-compatible, biomimetic color photodetector that directly responds to red, green and blue light in much the same way the human eye does.
Scientists create purple-winged butterflies in six generations
Nanostructured capsules could bring about paints and electronic displays that never fade
(Phys.org) —Among the taxidermal specimens in Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology, past centuries-old fur coats, arises a flicker of brilliant blue. This is the spangled cotinga. Surprisingly, the cotinga ...
Revision to rules for color in dinosaurs suggests connection between color and physiology
New research that revises the rules allowing scientists to decipher color in dinosaurs may also provide a tool for understanding the evolutionary emergence of flight and changes in dinosaur physiology prior ...
Fine-tuning a rainbow of colors at the nanoscale
(Phys.org) —TVs, image sensors, iPads, digital cameras and other modern devices use filters to display the breadth of colors available in the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
