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.

Suzhou Crystalent edge-lit, single layer collimated roll-to-roll nano backlight

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.

e-Skin Displays shows full-color structural plasmonic reflective display

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.

Best of I-Zone 2018: FLC Display without Color Filter by Hong Kong University

Posted by Charbax – June 14, 2018

The Best Prototype at I-Zone 2018 award winner at SID Display Week 2018 is Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. They present a solution to lower the power consumption of LCD by 3x by removing the color filter, their 250ppi active-matrix field-sequential color-display panel based on electrically suppressed helix ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC). FLC's fast response time of 10 microseconds under low voltage of 6.67V/micron enables field sequential color display operation with a 60-Hz frame rate and 360-Hz FLC driving frequency.

Reflective Electrowetting Display by South China Normal University at SID Display Week 2018 I-Zone

Posted by Charbax – June 14, 2018

South China Normal University (SCNU) has been developing reflective displays based on the “electrowetting” effect since 2012. A key point in their technology is the improvement of the aperture of display pixels, which for typical electrowetting displays is approximately 70 percent. SCNU displays include apertures of 85 percent, and if these cells are used in stacked cyan, magenta and yellow cells, the displayed colors are markedly more bright and saturated than in 70 percent aperture cells. As part of this key development, the contrast ratio must be maintained or increased, which is achieved by minimizing the stray light transmitted. Contrast ratios up to 20:1 can be shown.

PlayNitride MicroLED Wins Honorable Mention Award at Display Week 2018 I-Zone

Posted by Charbax – June 14, 2018

Taiwan’s PlayNitride, Inc. received an honorable mention for utilizing its PixeLED display technology to build a transparent display with an innovative and unique process to transfer RGB microLEDs onto a pixel.

During Display Week 2018, PlayNitride demonstrated two microLED prototypes. One is a small 0.89" 64x64 (105 PPI) panel with a brightness of 800 nits. All of the LED chips in this display were transferred in three shots (one shot per color). The pixel size in this display is 0.243 mm.

The second display is a larger panel - 3.12" 256x256 (116 PPI). Due to the larger number of LEDs (total of 786K LEDs) PlayNitride had to use 24 shots to transfer all three colored chips. The pixel size in this larger display is 0.219 mm.
