Frontline Technology: Photonic-Crystal Display Materials

Photonic Ink (P-Ink) technology comprises an active photonic crystal that reflects a band of color that can be tuned by controlling the applied current or voltage. All the individual spectral colors in the visible range can be reflected by a single P-Ink material. This technology provides an opportunity to create a wider range of primary colors than the conventional RGB system, given the same numbers of pixels for color mixing.
