Researchers at Cambridge University’s Centre of Molecular Materials for Photonics and Electronics (CMMPE) are developinghigh-colour-resolution laser displays using liquid-crystal laser technology.

They recently demonstrated a2D liquid-crystal laser array, which emitted red, green and blue colours simultaneously when optically pumped with a single 430nm source.

The researchers believe that such liquid-crystal lasers could be used to replace the individual RGB lasers that are currently required in emerging laser displays, leading to a reduction in materials and manufacturing costs.
