    Reported is the fabrication and demonstration of an array of >12 000 switchable liquid microlenses, each ~300 mum in diameter and switchable through plano-concave to plano-convex. Electrowetting is used to modulate the contact angle of an aqueous/oil liquid system over a range of 100deg, resulting in a switchable dioptric range of -360 m-1 to 230 m-1. Compared to previous reports of single 2-6 mm electrowetting lenses, the fabrication process reported herein reduces the individual lenslet size by ~10times. To dose liquids into large arrays of these small liquid lenslets, a scalable self-assembled dosing process was developed. The completed liquid lens array has a fill factor of 50% which can be extended to >80%. View full abstract»

    Laser diodes allow one to build a very thin, wide-gamut edge-lit backlight system for a direct-view liquid crystal display. An optical fiber is used to transfer its optical power into a light-guide. An ultrasound transmitter attached to the optical fiber is effective for reducing speckle noise because the mechanical vibration introduced averages out the random interference patterns. In experiment, we built a backlight system with a green laser and evaluated speckle noise by taking photographs under the conditions that mimicked human observation. The speckle contrast intrinsic to the laser was reduced from 17% to 2% by turning on the ultrasound transmitter. View full abstract»

    A study on LED displays has been conducted exploring a more efficient method for color generation than the traditional method. The study is comprehensive and thoroughly performed employing various sets of experiments in order to examine the functionality of the new proposed scheme which includes a literature review, theoretical modeling based on a scientific study, experimental data measurements of a developed prototype, and statistical data based on a survey. This study resulted in very interesting outcomes that may lead to a tremendous change in the existing LED display technology. View full abstract»
