ECE Highlights and Research Snapshots
Next-gen e-readers

By mimicking the iridescent nature of a peacock's feathers, Prof. Jay Guo and his group have come closer to developing next-generation reflective displays. Their technique of funneling light into nanoscale metallic grooves could one day lead to advanced color e-books and electronic paper, as well as color reflective screens that don't need their own light to be readable.
