The Stretchable display : The evolution into the ultimate display
Over the past few years, information display has developed remarkably taking on various forms and new appearances. Among them, flexible display has received significant attention due to its applications such as curved, bendable, foldable, and rollable display. However, the currently developed flexible displays have limitations in implementing design-free, because they can only be deformed in specific positions or directions. For the realization of true design-free as the ultimate display, a stretchable display technology is needed that is not only resilient but also capable of stretching and transforming into various forms without easily breaking.
This presentation will discuss the principal approaches and technical challenges to realize a commercially viable stretchable display.

From Micrograms to Tonnes: Enabling the Large-Scale Deployment of Quantum Dots
The rapid advancement of display technology has always aimed to deliver immersive visual experiences to consumers.  Achieving this goal requires overcoming various challenges, including technical performance such as sufficiently high resolution, life-like color, realistic high-dynamic-range (HDR) and cost-effective manufacturing at the massive 250 million-square-meter-per-year scale of the display industry. Quantum Dot (QD) technology delivers the best, most immersive visual experiences with great value to consumers today, and, as a result, QD technology continues to gain momentum in the display market. In 2023, consumers will have over 400 QD-powered display products to choose from. These products include displays of all types, from 1” VR headsets to notebooks, monitors, and the largest 110” TVs on the market. In fact, over 50% of premium TVs sold this year will contain QD technologies, including QDEF-MiniLED TVs and QD-OLED TVs. However, over 80% of the TVs sold globally are priced below $500. Can QD technology deliver its proven, premium visual experience at the cost and scale necessary to penetrate this important segment of the display market?

Recent Advances of OLED-on Silicon Microdisplays
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets require displays with high luminance, high resolution, excellent contrast, wide color gamut, high pixel density, low power consumption and light weight. However, existing display technologies have limitations in meeting these requirements. LCD microdisplays have high brightness but low contrast. Micro LEDs have high brightness and contrast but are still under development. Conventional full color OLED on Silicon microdisplays have low brightness due to the use of color filters that absorb up to 80% of the light.

To overcome these challenges, eMagin has developed a direct patterning (dPd™) technique that eliminates the color filters and patterns individual red, green and blue OLED emitters directly. Using the dPd™ technology, eMagin achieved a breakthrough brightness of 15,000 cd/m2 on WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) microdisplays and demonstrated them to industry experts in SID2022.
Other companies have recently demonstrated OLED microdisplays with improved luminance by using tandem OLED architecture and microlens arrays. eMagin expects to combine these techniques with dPd™ in the future to reach over 25,000 cd/m2. This paper will discuss the status of high brightness microdisplays for VR/AR applications.

OLEDs offer distinct advantages, including uniform irradiation, design flexibility, and precise spectral control. These attributes provide an opportunity to enhance the safety and effectiveness of phototherapy while paving the way for personalized and targeted therapeutic interventions.
An extensive investigation into the therapeutic effectiveness of OLED-based treatments for various biomedical applications, encompassing wound healing, hair growth, skin rejuvenation, neonatal jaundice, skin cancer, psoriasis, and Alzheimer's disease are introduced in this talk. Utilizing a wearable OLED patch platform, proliferation of fibroblast and keratinocyte cells was also discussed. Additionally, a comprehensive overview of wound healing tendencies across different wavelengths was provided, establishing clear treatment conditions for the first time. Furthermore, hair growth and cosmetic effects were respectively assessed. Moreover, the efficacy of jaundice treatment was validated through bilirubin level measurements using a textile-based blue OLED. The effectiveness of cancer and psoriasis treatment using high-output PDT (photodynamic therapy) in the red region are evaluated. Finally, the treatment of Alzheimer's disease is explored by utilizing the 5xFAD, an AD mouse model exposed to red OLED at 40Hz, resulting in a significant decrease in amyloid beta (Aβ) levels.
The results of wearable OLED phototherapy revealed promising prospects across various therapeutic applications, highlighting OLED-based treatments as a viable alternative to conventional therapeutic methods. The ability to finely adjust OLED emissions to specific wavelengths in particular offers a novel approach for optimizing treatment strategies and advancing patient care and medical interventions.

Crossing the Chasm to a Single Unified Backplane for Premium Smartphones to TVs
In the 1990s, CMOS technology had reached the limitations of performance improvements focused solely on semiconductor materials. Various approaches including “strained silicon” (silicon overlaid onto silicon germanium) delivered at best incremental improvements. The innovation of increasing the semiconductor channel area by increasing the gate area by moving from a planar to a vertical structure - the “FinFET” - crossed the chasm in the CMOS technology roadmap, continuing progress below 20nm geometries. Improving CMOS performance transitioned from a materials focus to a structural focus.
The premium segments of the display industry - from smartphone to TV - suffer from the same fracturing technology roadmap that formed a chasm in the CMOS industry in the 1990s. First the display industry moved to laser annealing amorphous silicon to gain the performance benefits of a crystalline material. Finding re-crystallization of silicon increased leakage current by orders of magnitude, Apple invented a pixel circuit with a low-leakage IGZO switching TFT controlling an LTPS driving TFT for AMOLED and microLED applications - LTPO. This improved the leakage problem at the pixel level, but introduced a number of materials issues and manufacturing complexity costs. After 5 years of development, LTPO is limited to smartphones and watches, scaling to only G6 lines at present and offering little hope of supporting premium mid-to-large-area displays.
As FinFET redefined the CMOS roadmap, it’s time for a new TFT structure to redefine the premium display backplane roadmap while creating a unified scalable platform for G6-10 manufacturing. Amorphyx has created the IGZO Amorphous Metal TFT utilizing standard PVD deposition and wet etch chemistries. Leveraging the benefits of an amorphous gate metal, AMeTFT delivers bulk accumulation mode operation from a single-gate device using industry-standard 1114 IGZO semiconductor. The AMeTFT achieves field effect mobilities >75 cm2/V-s with 10MV/cm PBTIS from a 9x9μm device show to scale from AMOLED and microLED smartphone to TV performance.
IGZO AMeTFT thus unifies backplane technology into a single, scalable platform technology - as FinFET achieved for the CMOS industry.

Thin glass processing technology for bendable OLED taillight on future cars
Interests and demands on thin, light, and flexible electronic devices are continuously growing due to its convenience on carrying and their aesthetic designs. In order to produce flexible electronic devices, thin and flexible substrates are used, and among flexible substrates including various polymers and glass, glass substrate has numerous advantages on light transmission, thermal and chemical stability, and low moisture permeability, surface flatness, and dimensional stability, compared with polymer substrate. Especially, for the device installed and used under extreme exterior environmental condition such as high/low temperature, UV exposure, and humidity, glass could provide stable reliability.
One of attractive application that Corning® Willow® glass is recently working on is a bendable OLED lighting. Technical strengths of OLED lighting, such as incomparable uniformity, light and thin characteristic, intrinsic segmentation, and digitalized lighting control have especially added innovative value to automotive taillight. Moreover, making it as a bendable shape to follow the curved shape of car is a great advantage to enhance the free-to-design merit of OLED lighting.
However, fabricating OLED panel on ultrathin glass has lots of obstacles due to its bending and sagging characteristics which makes it hard to handle and easy to break during the process. To provide solution to this issue happening during device making process, Corning has developed set of ultrathin glass processing technologies such as glass bonding/debonding and thin glass edge finishing to finally attain conformable bend-OLED using Willow®. In addition to this processing technologies, Corning also confirmed long-term reliability of glass under bent state through glass stress modeling and fundamental glass reliability studies.
