KAIST Creates 3D Holographic Projectable Display

Researchers at The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have designed an ultrathin display that can project dynamic, multi-colored, 3D holographic images. The result of the study was published in Nature Communications. The system's critical component is a thin film of titanium filled with tiny holes that precisely correspond with each pixel in a liquid crystal display (LCD) panel. This film acts as a 'photon sieve' - each pinhole diffracts light emerging from them widely, resulting in a high-definition 3D image observable from a wide...
