August 2014 – The Display Search Emerging Display Technology event, there were a number of companies once again speaking on the cost and performance advantages of nano-technology based products to improve and solve produces in the manufacturing of displays. These products have been promoted for many years at these events, and the stability and capability [...]

August 5, 2014, Emerging Display Technology Conference, San Jose, CA—A panel looked at the other system-level issues for video images. Pete Ludé from Mission Rock Digital moderated the group. Panelists were Julian Carey from Intematix, Veeral Hardev from Nanosys, Seth Coe-Sullivan fro QD Vision, Jimmy Kim from NPD DisplaySearch, and Roland Vlaicu from Dolby. Ludé [...]

August 5, 2014, Emerging Display Technology Conference, San Jose, CA—The last session at this conference considered interactivity. Calvin Hsieh from NPD Display Search opened the session, followed by Brian Daly from Synaptics, David Bordui from Cima NanoTech, and Russell Jordan from AMS. Hsieh noted that smart devices have different user interfaces that change with the [...]

August 5, 2014, Emerging Display Technology Conference, San Jose, CA—Paul Semenza from NPD DisplaySearch, Bob Senior from Canatu, and Sri Srinivas from Raydiance discussed the emerging flexible and curved displays. The drivers for non-planar displays are greater flexibility in design and the conflicting demands for smaller and lighter versus larger screens. Semenza opened with a [...]

August 5, 2014, Emerging Display Technologies Conference, Santa Clara, CA—A panel evaluated the present and future capabilities for manufacturing high-performance displays. Paul Semenza from NPD DisplaySearch moderated, with panelists Akihiro Mochizuki from Light Polymers, Conor Madigan from Kateeva, Kevin Gahagan from Corning Glass, and SK Kim from Applied Materials. Semenza opened with market trends for [...]

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 [...]
