ABSTRACT
This article reports that a British specialist in electroluminescent (EL) technology has teamed up with Cambridge University in a bid to produce a new hybrid electronic display that would be visible in all lighting conditions. Pelikon Ltd., which develops printed segment EL displays for use on consumer devices such as watches and remote control handsets, said the 18-month project aims to create an entirely new category of electronic display. The Cambridge company hopes to combine its EL know-how with the university's expertise in liquid crystal displays to produce a hybrid system that both emits and reflects light. In what it claimed would be a world first, the joint team will work on technology for a flexible display on a single substrate combining a polymer liquid crystal layer and a thick-film EL light-emitting layer. The commercial result would be a thin flat-panel display driven by a single electronic drive circuit that is visible in all ambient lighting.
