New Tech Promises Dense, Efficient, Flexible Displays
A team at Oxford University has discovered a new type of display technology that consists of a simple thin film of phase-change material (PCM) between two thin films of transparent electrodes. The three layers can be applied to very thin, flexible Mylar sheets, creating a flexible display. The material only requires power to change state, so it holds an image without power, making it extremely power-efficient. The technique can currently create individual pixels as small as 300 x 300 nanometers, resulting in displays much sharper than today's. The team has also found a way to produce different colors by altering the size of the bottom electrode. Although the work is still in its early stages, the team has filed a patent and is working to commercialize the technology through Isis Innovation, Oxford University's technology commercialization company.
Micro-LED Backlights Could Bring OLED Performance to LCD Screens
AT CES this week, Rohinni demonstrated its micro-LED technology, and provided a glimpse at new backlight technology it's working on for the LCD display panels used in phones. While most LED chips are around 1mm, Rohinni's micro-LEDs are many times smaller and can be placed precisely on thin, flexible plastic sheets.
E Ink Reveals Full-Color ePaper Display
E Ink today announced Advanced Color ePaper (ACeP), which is a full-color reflective display. E Ink says this is the first time an electrophoretic display can produce color in every pixel without the use of a color filter array.
Researchers Create Low-Power, High-Resolution Display Tech
Scientists at the University of Oxford have discovered new display technology that can be used to make bright, high-resolution screens while hardly drawing any power. Oxford is bullish enough on the technology that it formed a new company, called Bodle Technologies, to commercialize the discovery.
LG Turning to OLED for V30's FullVision Display
LG today said its "next flagship smartphone" — widely believed to be the V30 — will be the first to adopt a plastic OLED FullVision display. LG has used plastic OLED before, notably on the 2015 Flex 2, which was in fact curved and flexible.
iphone 7 screen
but you do realize that Apple is still using LCD displays right now?
They're not exactly on the cutting edge of technology. And why does just the iPhone need this display?
Can't we all get phones we like with nice displays?
