Graphene Could Enable Holographic 3-D Imaging on a Mobile Device

Graphene Could Enable Holographic 3-D Imaging on a Mobile Device

Last year, we covered research that was promising to bring new life to 3-D TV by eliminating the need for special glasses to see the 3-D effect. That work proposed at the University of Central Florida (UCF) was going to pursue nanoprinting techniques that would turn polymers into 3-D holographic displays that functioned much like Princess Leia’s message in Star Wars . In theory, the proposed technology would involve a stationary table projecting the holograms. Now researchers at Swinburne University of Technology in Australia are leveraging graphene to get a similar effect with a mobile device. “Our technique can be leveraged to achieve compact and versatile optical components for controlling light,” said Min Gu, director of Swinburne’s Centre for Micro-Photonics, in a press release. “We can create the wide angle display necessary for mobile phones and tablets.” In researc...
