Tungsten trioxide is the core material in a new type of reflective screen — sometimes described as “electronic paper” — that offers optimal color display and uses ambient light to keep energy consumption to a minimum. The new technology could be used in displays for smart devices.
Traditional digital screens use a backlight to illuminate the text or images displayed upon them, which limits the ability of the material they are displaying to be seen in bright sunshine. Reflective screens use ambient light, mimicking the way our eyes respond to natural paper.
The researchers, from Chalmers University, previously developed an ultrathin, flexible material that reproduced all the colors an LED screen can…READ MORE
