[ News, Science / Tech, October 16 2007] Korean, U.S. researchers develop lighting material for LCD

A joint Korea-U.S. research team said Tuesday (Oct. 16) that they have developed a new lighting material that greatly enhances liquid crystal display (LCD) clarity in an outdoor environment.

The new material, made with variable photonic crystals, mimics the powerful changes in the skin color of squids and octopuses.

This method can control light fluctuations through a wide spectrum, including infrared and ultraviolet areas, and contributes to high-definition images.
