Sony’s Rollable OLED Display is Ecology Friendly
Are you one amongst those thousands who have become extremely aware of their environmental footprint? Can you imagine the term ‘rollable’ associated with display screens? You must be wondering how these two questions connect together. Sony’s new technology has created an admiration in the research circle by launching rollable OLED display having organic components.
- The display is 4.1 inch wide which can be easily rolled over a minimum of 4mm cylindrical pencil like object while still displaying moving images even after 1000 cycles of repeated rolling-up and stretching.
- It is super-flexible at 80 μm of thickness.
- Its resolution at 432×240 pixel (121 ppi) is comparable to most of the mobile phones available today in the market and in fact it is the highest resolution driven display.
- The display supports 16M colors with superb brightness and contrast.
- The OLED display is durable, flexible, thin, and light-weight thus, appropriate for application in mobile devices.
- The high performing organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) driven rollable OLED display achieves its flexible quality due to original organic semiconductor material.
- Integration of the OTFTs with OLED technology on an ultra-thin and flexible 20μm substrate facilitates in getting rid of the conventional rigid driver IC chips.
- The organic semiconductor material developed by Sony is stable in moisture, light, heat, and exposure to oxygen. It has improved current modulation too.
- Moreover, the organic insulators used in OTFT and OLED integration circuit consume materials and energy most efficiently thus reducing environment footprint.
After reading this technical review, you must be wondering that how Sony’s rollable OLED display will be of any help to you. Well, as this remarkable gadget is still under research we can’t unfortunately buy it to use it. Once it is out in the market, researchers envision its physical characteristics of sturdiness to be valuable in application for portable gadgets. You never know, ‘Minority Report’ screens may soon become outdated and replaced with portable and flexible OLED display screens!
