Various companies are currently trying to perfect the technology behind a new type of flat-panel display that will rely on diamonds or carbon nanotubes for image production.

FEDs (Field Effect Displays) will consume less energy than plasma or liquid crystal display technology, and produce a far sharper picture.

"The concept of a nanotube TV will give you image quality similar to CRTs (cathode ray tubes), and the best image quality is still found on CRT TVs," said Tom Pitstick, vice president of marketing at Houston's Carbon Nanotechnologies. "All the major display manufacturers are looking at nanotube TVs."

Televisions based on the new screens will nudge onto shelves in late 2006, he added.
