Speech Title: Prospect for Future Information Displays
Abstract: Display products changed from CRT, PDP to LCD and OLED, and the applications are also extended from TV, PC monitor and mobiles to digital signage, AR/VR and automobile applications. Recently, there are huge demand on the information displays such as flexible display, micro-LED, QD display and micro-OLED for AR/VR applications. I will explain the display technology history and touch on the current issues and future prospects for next-generation displays.
Current hot issues for displays are flexible AMOLED and mini/micro-LED displays. Large area micro-LED displays are a lot demonstrated, but TFT based micro-LED displays are currently focusing for manufacturing of cost-effective displays. On the other hand, flexible AMOLEDs are being manufactured for foldable/rollable smartphones and rollable TV and laptop applications. I will discuss the future prospect of display technologies.
