Flat panels go nanotech

TFT LCD looks firmly entrenched as the dominant flat-panel technology, but in fact the displays industry is keen to find a technology that delivers better performance – and, crucially, at lower cost.

One promising technology is the carbon-nanotube field-emission display (CNT-FED). In Taiwan, key development work on CNT-FEDs is ongoing at the Electronics Research and Service Organization of the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ERSO/ITRI). Recently, following ITRI’s announcement of the development of a 20-inch CNT backlight unit (CNT-BLU), had the opportunity to talk with Dr. CC Lee, deputy director of flat-panel development at ERSO/ITRI.
