It can be termed "pico-technology" in that it goes beyond nanotechnology to control the tilt angle of liquid crystal molecules, which are only around two nanometers(4) in size, with an accuracy measured in picometers.
With an adequate design this reflective coupling may be limited to a narrow spectral range, typically to a few hundred picometers.
