Liquid crystal displays (LCDs)

Liquid crystal displays (LCDs) are currently the dominating technology of all flat panel displays. Because of their slim form, they quickly replaced cathode ray televisions and penetrated the mobile devices market. They also paved the way for the presence of information displays in our daily life, which allows us to be more connected than ever before.

One major improvement of LCDs in the past was the invention of active matrix LCDs. By controlling each pixel individually by a thin film transistor (TFT), the image of the displays became more vivid and thus more realistic.

For even better images, it is necessary to further improve the quality of these thin film transistors: The faster they switch, the better the image quality; and the smaller their dimension, the higher the resulting display resolution.

iXsenic materials not only allow for the TFT’s extremely fast switching speeds, they also allow for very small TFTs because of their high charge carrier mobility. In addition to creating higher resolution, this advantage also allows for lower power consumption in mobile devices.

Tremendous flexibility in production processes also results from the passivation material and the unique way of deposition by coating or printing of the iXsenic semiconductor. Compositions can easily be tuned to produce various applications tailored to meet the requirements specific to the semiconductor.
