Native red InGaN microdisplay, from Cambridge

University of Cambridge spin-out Porotech has built what is said is the world’s first micro-display that emits red natively from indium gallium nitride – meaning that no phosphors are involved. The 960 x 540 display measures 14mm (0.55in) across the diagonal. “Until now, it has only been possible to produce blue and green micro-displays using GaN-based light-emitting ...
