ABSTRACT
The article focuses on mirasol display, a reflective display technology developed by Qualcomm Inc. in San Diego, California. Mirasol displays reduce energy consumption with no backlighting, however, the displays are viewed in bright sunlight. It also manipulates light using the micron and sub-micronsized mechanical elements and natural iridescent colors. Furthermore, each pixel is composed of micro-electromechanical-system (MEMS) elements that display bright and vibrant colors without the use of polarizers or semiconductor materials.
