Boffins figure method to cut out Indium from LCDs

A TEAM OF SCIENTISTS at Kochi University have teamed up with Geomatec and Casio to work out a way of making TFT LCD panels without having to use as much Indium. said that the technique will cut out three quarters of the amount of Indium used to make transparent electrodes by replacing it with a special type of “nanopowder” zinc oxide, which is obviously far cheaper than Indium. The breakthrough will take three years at last to incorporate into a practical manufacturing method.
