What Academics Say about Micro LED

The new display technology Micro LED actually has a history of over a decade. After Apple acquired LuxVue Technology, it officially became famous. Its properties- high resolution, high brightness, real-time response, and low power consumption- win hearts of many A-list high-tech companies such as Apple, Sony, Google and Facebook, as well as companies in the display industry.

Rapid Assembly of Quantum Dots for MicroLED Micro-Displays

Inorganic microLEDs are the next big thing in displays, not as backlights for LCDs, but like OLEDs, as the actual light emitting pixel elements, ranging from applications in Micro-displays for Augmented /Virtual Reality (AR/VR) to wearables such as Smartwatches and Cellphones. Unlike OLED displays, however, they are far more robust and long-lived, and most importantly, far more efficient and much brighter, making them viable even for larger displays, such as video walls in advertising and in cinema in place of projection.  But to make the technology cost effective, manufacturing challenges abound, particularly as pixel sizes shrink in next generation micro-displays. For example, various coatings must be rapidly deposited in a precise, controlled manner, such as the Quantum Dots (QDs) integrated with the LEDs used in larger displays either to sharpen the color characteristics of traditional phosphors, or fully replace them in micro-displays, relying solely on QDs for color conversion. Better technology is needed for reliably depositing the various costly materials used, and even for rapidly assembling or arraying the microLEDs themselves.
