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."

Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics
24.04.2017 | University of Illinois College of Engineering
More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
