Analyzing crystal structure improves displays

Dec 2, 2016 United States
The finding could potentially be useful for a number of different applications. It could lead to a way of making large, transparent display screens, where most light would pass straight through as if through a window, but light of specific frequencies would be scattered to produce a clear image on the screen. Or, the method could be used to make private displays that would only be visible to the person directly in front of the screen.
