Applied Materials, Inc. today announced its new Applied AKT-20K PX PECVD system for manufacturing high performance active matrix OLED* and TFT-LCD displays used in the most advanced smart phone and tablet PC applications.
Using critical LTPS* technology, the system deposits highly-uniform films on 1.95m2 glass sheets that are three times larger than the previous standard size. This capability enables manufacturers to significantly increase production and drive down cost - helping to accelerate the transition to larger, high resolution screen sizes for mobile consumer products.The rich colors and low power consumption of OLED display technology have resulted in strong demand for 4-5 inch displays in smartphones. The next generation of tablet computers is expected to employ larger, 7-12 inch OLED displays, which will require greatly expanded production capacity to meet the demand. In addition to larger OLED displays, Applied's AKT-20K PX system enables ultra-high definition TFT-LCD screens with more closely-packed pixels, resulting in brighter, sharper, lower energy displays compared to previously available technology.
"We are leveraging over a decade of leadership in large-area PECVD deposition technology to help our customers meet the surging consumer demand for OLED displays," said Tom Edman, group vice president and general manager of Applied's Display Business Group. "We've scaled up our production proven LTPS deposition technology and deployed it on our latest multi-chamber platform to deliver state-of-the-art performance and productivity to customers. We're experiencing high demand for the AKT-20K PX system, with multiple units shipped to major display manufacturers."

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
