2015-05-03 Light Emitting Paper

Quantsuff emailed us a link about a new material summarized at Newscientist.com.  I have a few thoughts that I’d like to add.

The stuff should be great for illumination.  But I have doubts about its use for display purposes.  Displays have millions of very small pixels.  If one or a few get contaminated with dust or dirt, they will not light, and the display will have a bad dark spot on it.  Displays are made in a dust free environment, and paper is a natural carrier of dust.  I doubt it could be kept clean enough to be dust free.
