Transparent Displays Enabled By Resonant Nanoparticle Scattering

Transparent displays have many useful applications: one may turn a regular window into a projection screen, or display navigation and dashboard information while looking through the windshield of a car or plane. A number of technologies have been developed aiming at a subset of these applications, but each method has certain limitations. Researchers in the MIT MRSEC have developed a new type of transparent display using resonant nanoparticle scattering. Transparent Displays Enabled By Resonant Nanoparticle Scattering thumbnail

Better Batteries Through Biology

Lithium-oxygen batteries have a great potential to enhance the gravimetric energy density of fully packaged batteries by 2-3 times that of lithium-ion cells, thus greatly increasing the range of electric vehicles. Better Batteries Through Biology highlight thumbnail image
