      Abstract:

      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.
