High resolution images are the need of today. If you as well is fond of quality then this latest invention from pool of Scientists from Singapore shall interest you largely. This team of scientist also contains one from India and they have succeeded in developing an ultra high resolution image- which has approximately 10,000 dots in one inch. Another very amazing thing that can be noticed about this discovery is that it is the image without dyes or inks and is sure to revolutionize the art of image printing.
The researchers of Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) from Singapore have developed a different way of image printing by demonstrating this innovative image printing technology which is capable of producing sharp and complete spectrum color images at about 10,000 dots in one inch. It is applicable in all sorts of reflective color displays, optical data recording of very high density as well as anti-counterfeiting.
In comparison to that, the currently used inkjet and LaserJet matrix printers have very low image quality capable of achieving just about 10,000 dpi. On the other hand these research grade methods shall be able to dispense off the dyes for images of single color. In this, the coloring is treated not as inking matter but as a lithographic process which is very similar to lithography which is art of printing patterns on the stone. This technology is of course going to revolutionize everything and can also be modified further to obtain color displays of high resolution and also optical data storage.
Using the structures of metal laced nanometers, researchers were able to develop images of very high quality. The main inspiration of using this technology was derived from the stained glass. These stained glasses are manufactured by mixing up tiny fragments into the glass. These nanoparticles on the metal fragments were able to reflect light and this principle was modified further to print out high quality images. Karthik Kumar who is the scientist of Indian origin in the team speaks off that the quality of images and its resolution depends largely on the distance between nanoparticles.
