Displays to Eliminate Reading Glasses
 
It sounds like science fiction, but a new computer display technology could eliminate the need for reading glasses. The technology uses algorithms based on a person's prescription to alter display content, such as on a smartphone, tablet, or computer screen, before it reaches the viewer's eyes. In conjunction with a plastic light filter dotted with tiny holes on the display surface, the algorithms help produce what will appear as a clear image when light from the pixels hits the viewer's retina. Tested on a popular mobile device, the system is the first of its kind with contrast ratios and resolutions that rival the original display.

Miniature X-ray Source
MOXTEK, Inc.
 
The 12 W source is used in small bench top and portable XRF systems. It operates at high voltages up to 60 kV and at very low voltages of 4 kV with emission currents up to 1.0 mA. These features are critical for more precise and faster XRF analysis of elements at low concentrations.

Cockpit Display Technology Comes Down to Earth
 
A patented optical bonding technology most frequently used in aviation primary displays is making its way into consumer tablets and smartphones. A global display manufacturer has entered into a licensing agreement to employlthe bonding technology, which its developer calls "more efficient and environmentally friendly than a liquid lamination process."

That's How It Rolls
 
An 18 in. flexible OLED display can roll into a cylinder of just 6 cm in diameter without affecting its image. The transparent OLED has a transmittance, or haze, of less than 2%, a vast improvement over most other transparent LEDs with a transmittance of 10%. The polyimide film that holds the display creates a thinner panel with a smaller radius of curvature.

Know When to Fold 'Em
 
Two foldable 5.9 in. OLED panels showcased at the Society for Information Display's (SID) Display Week conference in San Diego can fold in half or thirds. In both displays, a color filter, TFT, and OLED layers sit between two sets of a sealing layer and flexible substrate. When unfolded, the 5.9 in. panels offer a resolution of 1280 x 729 pixels and a pixel density of 249 ppi.

Hybrid Construction Works for Embedded Touch
 
In an exclusive interview during SID, this manufacturer of embedded touch solutions outlined the benefits of hybrid in-cell/on-cell construction over true in-cell or on-cell methods. Hybrid construction offers high sensitivity, works with a fine-tipped stylus and provides a high manufacturing yield. The technology will appear in an upcoming 10 in. tablet, although the company has no plans for a 13.3 in. display (for an Ultrabook).

New Sensations
 
A vibrating object, such as a smartphone, can give the illusion of pushing or pulling in the user's hand. Japanese researchers exploit this in two new force display devices. Users who tested one of the devices reported a strong sensation, like a piece of string was tugging at the device. The devices' applications include navigation and gaming, as well as wearable smart devices.

New Transparent Film Cleans Itself
 
This new transparent conductive polycarbonate film can do nearly everything but wipe itself clean. And if you count anti-fogging capabilities as a form of "cleaning," it can do that, too. The new lightweight material offers excellent transparency, high flexibility, and excellent conductivity. It could lead to the development of faster response touchscreens and much more.
