Lovell receives NSF grant for electrophoretic displays


Associate Professor David Lovell (CEE/ISR) has been awarded a three year, $213,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to develop electrophoretic, retroreflective displays for conveyance of transportation-related information. The project, "Electrophoretic Displays for Urban Traffic Information and Control," will develop and test a novel display technology that is both electophoretic (involves the movement and/or rotation of charged particles in response to electric fields) and variably retroreflective, which means that incident light upon the display device is reflected (when desired) in the direction whence it came.  If successful, these display technologies might lead to such developments as electronically switchable roadway paints and tunnel walls that display messages.
