Displays: Magnetochromatic Microcapsule Arrays for Displays (Adv. Funct. Mater. 11/2011)
Displays based on magnetochromatic microcapsules with narrow size distribution, controllable size, shell thickness, and morphology, are presented by Zhong-Ze Gu and co-workers on page 2043. The capsules are fabricated using a microfluidic technique and, when assembled, form multipixel arrays. Each microcapsule acts as an individual display unit, whose color can be controlled by an external magnetic field.
