Eliminating light leakage in a liquid crystal display
Using pairs of orthogonal wave plates can eliminate light leakage from liquid crystal displays to allow higher-quality dark images.
High-index microspheres embedded in elastomer or immersed in liquid allow straightforward super-resolution imaging of biological, metallic, and semiconductor structures.
