  • Organic Transistors for the Application of High-Resolution
    Active Matrix Display based on Ink-Jet Printing Process

    Organic semiconductors (OSCs), with the advantage of mechanically soft nature and expectation for low-cost process, have been studied continuously for several electronic applications, such as an active-matrix backplanes and chemical sensors. Large progress in applying OSCs as an active channel material in field-effect transistors (FETs) has been made especially for display backplanes. In this presentation technical issues in realizing high-resolution active matrix backplane using OSCs based on solution printing techniques will be introduced. Unlike silicon based devices, differentiated point of view is required in terms of materials and process. Design concept for semiconductors, interface control between insulator and OSCs, and new pixel design cell architecture will be discussed.

  • Larger and thinner FPD glass substrates and ultra-thin flat glass 50 μm thick

    In accordance with the trend of FPDs becoming larger and thinner, manufacturers of flat glass that is used as a FPD substrate material are rushing into development of larger and thinner quality sheet glass with high surface flatness without deficiency. Nippon Electric Glass Co., Ltd has been engaged in production of FPD substrate glass, pursuing largeness and thinness of sheet glass with no limit. As a result, the company successfully produced ultra-thin glass sheet 50 μm thick in 2007. Since thin glass sheet has some advantages such as light weight, flexibility and processability, it is likely to be used in new applications as a new material. This presentation introduces FPD glass sheet and ultra-thin flat panel both of which are increasingly becoming larger and thinner.

  • Current & Future Technology of Glasses-free 3D Display

    Toshiba launched glasses-free 3D display products in 2010, which are the world's first 3D TVs that do not require dedicated glasses. Current 3D display technologies for small and medium sized panel provide good performance. There, however, is room for improvement of a display size, visible area, and image sharpness. High definition panel whose pixel resolution is 4K x 2K and LED backlight were used for high performance of 20 inch glasses-free 3D TV. And for those reasons, image quality of 2D as well as 3D is important for next glasses-free 3D display products.

  • e-Paper Technology & Future Development

    Electronic paper (e-Paper) is projected, by many market research firms, to have huge potential in a variety of applications, such as e-Book, signage, shelf labels, etc. Among them, e-Reader, the first major e-paper product following the launch of Amazon’s Kindle in 2007, has caught most attention. Initial products have limited color capability, and are still on glass substrate. Future development will target colorization, fast refresh-rate, touch function, ruggedness, and conformability. To meet the needs for digital life style and for a ‘greener’ display panel, ITRI, in recent years, has focused research on flexible display technologies. For digital life, flexible EPD, OLED will address portability, while flexible touch is to enhance user interface. For ‘green panel,’ large-area, roll-to-roll Cholesteric LCD will deliver power saving and cost advantages. Meanwhile, flexible substrate and flexible TFT backplane are developed as the basic, enabling technologies to render today’s many rigid displays to become flexible.

  • Effects of Display Quality for Smart Phones on Viewing Performance and Comfort

    The speech will detail a study aimed to test the visual performance and comfort of smart phone users. In it, younger (age 18 to 30) and older (40 to 65) viewers performed tasks on three smart phones with distinct display technologies (AH-IPS LCD, pentile OLED, and vertical strip OLED). Effect of resolution and luminance difference was tested directly with reading performance and visual comfort under different lighting conditions. Effect of display resolution and color saturation was examined with visual discrimination and display quality preference. Results show displays with higher brighter emitted luminance and finer spatial resolution resulted in greater ability to resolve visual details, farther viewing distances, and lower physical and cognitive symptoms. Participant's subjective preference was consistent with their objectively measured visual performance in favoring phones with better resolution and balanced luminance. The present findings indicate the need of further improvement in the display resolution and subpixel luminance output for smart phone displays.
