Decades ago, a display was a tool for information feedback, but today’s technology has turned them into a means for information management, high-definition entertainment and high-tech research. Display technology ranges from the century old CRT to displays based on micro electro mechanical systems and emerging nano-based materials.
The CRT had been the dominant technology in displays for many years, but flat panel models have overtaken the CRT, particularly in desktop computer applications and other situations where space is an important consideration. Flat panel technology also is more flexible than CRT, especially as the mobile monitor and handheld uses of displays expand.
