Samsung Corning keen on developing CNT backlight modules

Abstract:
Major players in the TFT-LCD display industry, such as Samsung Corning and LG Electronics (LGE), are keen to develop carbon-nanotube (CNT) backlight modules, with Taiwan-based backlight-module makers also interested in following suit, sources said.

In theory, CNT backlight modules have a lower temperature, consume less power and are less expensive to produce than traditional backlight modules. Samsung Corning believes it highly likely that the technology will eventually replace CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) backlighting, the sources said.
