Zhijing Nanotech Quantum Dot backlight units (QD-BLUs) using perovskite quantum-dot film (PQDF)

Posted by Charbax – June 17, 2018

Zhijing Nanotech from Beijing, China, develops next-gen quantum dot backlight units (QD-BLUs) for wide color gamut QLCD technology, which contains perovskite quantum-dot film (PQDF) as a primary light-conversion component. The PQDF exhibits high light conversion efficiency, narrow emission peak, high integration and low cost. During Display Week, they demonstrated the wide-color gamut PQDF-LCD TV prototype, which was achieved by combining the blue-light emitting diode (LED) chip, red K2SiF6:Mn4+ (KSF) phosphor, and green PQDF as RGB backlight sources. The luminance is above 500 nits.

Fluxim Phelos benchtop R&D instrument measures electroluminescence spectrum in all angles

Posted by Charbax – June 17, 2018

High performance long lifetime emitting materials are essential to the success of OLEDs and quantum-dots (QDs), the summit of today’s display technology. The Swiss company Fluxim introduces Phelos, a benchtop R&D instrument that determines the position and orientation of emitters inside a working OLED stack or QD down-conversion film which are key optimization parameters. Phelos measures the electroluminescence spectrum in all emission and polarization angles. Furthermore, the instrument can be transformed into a photoluminescence spectrometer, unleashing the full advantage of angular luminescence analysis. An integrated optical model based on Fluxim’s simulation software Setfos with fitting algorithm provides a fast and accurate extraction of the emission zone and emitter molecule orientation. The new instrument Phelos complements Fluxim’s portfolio of R&D tools including the opto-electronic simulator Setfos, the electro-thermal simulator Laoss and the all-in-one instrument Paios, all designed to tackle challenges in the display and emerging PV industry. Fluxim founder Beat Ruhstaller demonstrated Phelos and the other R&D tools at the I-ZONE at SID Display Week 2018.

EXALOS shows RGB superluminescent light-emitting diodes (SLEds) for next-gen AR microdisplays

Posted by Charbax – June 17, 2018

EXALOS AG is developing visible RGB superluminescent light-emitting diodes (SLEds) as illumination sources for next-gen AR microdisplays. SLEDs exhibit performance characteristics that bridge the gap between semi-conductor lasers and LEDs. They combine the potential of wide-color gamut and high efficiency with high-spatial coherence (high directionality) and low-temporal coherence (reduced speckle content/coherent artifacts). Consequently, they offer important benefits when used to illuminate near-to-eye MEMs-scanning architectures and spatial-light modulators in holographic display systems.

At the I-Zone, EXALOS demonstrated its first prototype cyano-green (490-500 nm) SLED and its new red-blue devices. It also demonstrated reduced speckle in a projection application; showing the advantage of their special light source known as “super amazing diode,” a speckle-free laser.

Posted by Charbax – June 17, 2018

Suzhou Crystalent demonstrated its edge-lit, single layer backlight or forelight module and a collimated backlight module based on compound roll-to-roll nanofabrication technology. The former is transparent, flexible, compact, lightweight and low-cost with a thickness of less than 0.5mm; while the latter is a four-layer flexible module with a thickness of less than 1.5mm. The unit can be laminated onto an LCD panel as either backlight or forelight for transmissive or reflective applications respectively; while the latter may serve as a standard platform, combining with various diffusers to result in any desired viewer application.

Posted by Charbax – June 17, 2018

e-Skin Displays seeks to recreate structural color similar to nature’s (like the skin of a chameleon) that can adapt and change color and pattern to match its surroundings. This display is thin and flexible, has a rich color gamut, uses ambient light to reflect, is angle dependent and is very low power. The company demonstrated a full-color structural plasmonic display with a breakthrough gray/black state, a rich and bright color gamut, and a very high video rate, enabling opportunities in digital signage, consumer electronics and defense applications.

Sendai College of Japan shows micro-optical diffused light-control film (DLC)

Posted by Charbax – June 17, 2018

Researchers at the Optical Function Device Workshop at the National Institute of Technology, Sendai College, demonstrated unique screens using micro-optical elements for projection displays. The screen is a combination of directional diffused light-control film (DLC) with a micro-structured optical film. The screen directs the environment-scattered light to a direction that is different from that of the screen viewer. One is a directive screen using an array of CCR with diverted and curved surfaces (D-CCR), which reflects and scatters the light toward a certain angle: the viewer’s face. The screen has a gain of 16 and reflects extremely bright images even with small and low-power projections.
