Making Al green; Display screens
September 19, 2014
The next generation of screens may be based on microscopic aluminium rods CATHODE-RAY tubes relied on phosphors made of inorganic chemicals to generate their pictures. They, however, are history. Many of the flat screens that replaced them--whether liquid-crystal displays or more modern organic light-emitting diode displays--rely on organic chemicals instead. These tend to be less stable, and thus less long-lived than inorganics. A good, cheap way of making inorganic displays would thus be welcome. And one beckons in the form of systems that exploit a phenomenon called surface plasmonics to generate their colours.

A sharper image for TV; Difference engine
September 15, 2014
With a picture four times sharper, Ultra-HD is out to grab your attention WITH high-definition (HD) televisions now in four out of five American homes, they have become, from a manufacturer's point of view, low-profit-margin commodity items. Hence the recent marketing blitz intended to persuade people to replace their existing sets with so-called 4K models, which quadruple the number of pixels on the screen. By offering sharper images, South Korean and Japanese television makers, such as LG, Samsung, Sony, Sharp and Panasonic, hope to reset prices to levels at which they can earn substantial profits again. Discounted 60-inch HD sets (LCD or plasma) can be had for less than $600. Similar sized 4K models, which cost not all that more than HD sets to make, go for $2,800 or so. Also, by raising the technological stakes in this way, these long-established firms hope to distance themselves from low-cost Chinese rivals, such as TCL, Haier, HiSense, Konka and Changhong, which are muscling in on the $8 billion American television market now sales at home have slowed down.
