Carbon Nanotubes: Carbon Nanotube Based High Resolution Holograms (Adv. Mater. 44/2012)



By using carbon nanotubes as the smallest possible scattering element, light can be diffracted in a highly controlled manner to produce a 2D image, as reported by Haider Butt and co-workers on page OP331. An array of carbon nanotubes is elegantly patterned to produce a high resolution hologram. In response to incident light on the hologram, a high contrast and wide field of view “CAMBRIDGE” image is produced.
