MIT team develops cheap transparent projection screen
A team from the MIT and Harvard departments of Physics, and the US Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center, has reportedly developed a new method for producing transparent projection screens.
The researchers used the property of nanoparticles to create transparent displays and the designs have numerous attractive features, making it a suitable option in various other fields.
Prof. John Joannopoulos said that a variety of transparent displays have been developed for specific applications and are already in commerce, but each of them has some limitations, Eureka reported.
The resonant nanoparticle scattering technique is apparently capable of initiating further developments such as flexible and scrollable displays, 3D transparent screens, and peel-and-stick projection foils.
