August 14, 2012, Emerging Display Technology Conference, Santa Clara, CA—G. Rajeswaran form Moser Baer Technologies presented the advances in OLED technology for displays and lighting. The latest technologies have evolved from work starting in the mid ’80s. Kodak started their efforts to make solar cells, but the materials didn’t absorb energy, they emitted light. Along [...]

August 14, 2012, Emerging Display Technologies Conference, Santa Clara, CA—David Flattery from DuPont described the research and investigations needed to support solution processing of OLEDs. The chemicals for the displays are a work in progress. The materials and processing for those materials is challenged by the need to quickly scale to volume manufacturing. As the [...]

August 13, 2012, Display Search Emerging Display Technology Conference, Santa Clara, CA—Waguih Ishak from the Corning West Technology Center described their efforts to improve the glass characteristics to enable the latest displays. Corning conducts a lot of R&D in materials and processing to improve their glass. As a glass manufacturer, Corning been in the business [...]

August 13, 2012, Display Search Emerging Display Technology Conference, Santa Clara, CA—Dan van Ostrand from UniPixel described another alternative to ITO for sensors. The conflicting requirements for transparency and high conductivity are addressed by using copper as the conductor. They make a metal mesh touch sensor that can be printed in a roll-to-roll production process [...]

 August 17, 2011, Emerging Display Technologies Conference, San Jose, CA—Rahul Gupta from Cambios talked about transparent conductors for displays. The drive for higher performance and resolution is driving the industry towards alternatives to ITO (indium tin oxide) for on-surface transparent conductors. Transparent conductors are processed as a coating material, either some type of ink or [...]

 August 16, 2011, Emerging Display Technologies Conference, San Jose, CA—We talked with Matt Liszt from MasterImage3D about their autostereoscopic technology for LCDs. They’ve made some changes to some base parallax barrier technologies which provide sharp, bright, 3-D images, without the problems of lenticular displays. Their auto stereoscopic display technology allows direct viewing of 3-D content [...]

 August 16, 2011, Emerging Display Technologies Conference, San Jose, CA—We talked with Andrew Hemmingway and Karen Elder from Schott about the new families of glass for displays. Schott has developed new specialty glasses for touch displays. The Xensation cover glass includes versions for all types of touch screens including capacitive, resistive, optical and acoustic technologies. [...]
