Nanoparticle-based Holographic Display

UCF Office of Research & Commercialization, FL, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

This display system makes use of nanoparticles, able to be produced in bulk, whose light-scattering properties can be controlled to display an image with depth perception (in essence, holographic) on non-powered transparent or opaque surfaces including windshields, windows, glasses, handheld devices, and even fabrics.

Primary Application Area: Defense & Transportation

Technology Development Status: Concept

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 2

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: New nanoparticle-based painted photonic display is more versatile, more useable under extreme conditions in remote areas, and more rugged than current display systems. It is lighter, non-powered, useable with transparent surfaces, and not constricted to flat geometries, and therefore a valuable display alternative for military, defense industry, and DoD contractors.
