All-optical full-color displays using polymer nanofibers. ACS Nano,2011, vol. 5, No. 3, 2020-2025.
We report a number of crossed nanofiber structures for full-color micro/nanodisplays,
which were formed by assembling flexible poly(trimethylene terephthalate) (PTT) nanofibers
under an optical microscope with the assistance of micromanipulators. The color pixels of the
displays consist of micro/nanometer sized color spots in a radius of 300-1500 nm, which were
realized through crossed junctions of the PTT nanofibers. The colors of the spots were tuned by
changing the power ratios of the launched red, green, and blue lights. We further present a new way
to develop white light illumination by combination of red, green, and blue lights with assembly
techniques and low production costs.
