light-emitting ink

luminescent ink
Using conventional screen printing techniques Dai Nippon Printing in Japan have developed a way of using light emitting inks that can be printed on a range of different surfaces, including paper and fabric.

The ink works with a lumniescent get which emits bright light when a voltage is applied to it. The technique generates pixels which currently only produce fuzzy images. The team is experimenting with depositing the gel via ink-jet printers to improve resolution and create smaller pixels.

Dai Nippon Printing hope to bring the technology to the market within the next five years.
