A New Way To Make Lenticular Displays?


Chinese team develops large-area periodic perovskite nanostructures suitable for lenticular printing laser displays

Lenticular printing provides an illusion of depth and shows varying images upon view angles, which is considered as a promising approach towards future stereoscopic displays.

To make lenticular-printing-based display, it is required to modulate the outcoupling direction of emission light rather than that of incident light. Ideally, the lenticular-lens-like structures would be integrated into the active layer of light-emitting devices.

Hybrid perovskite becomes a promising candidate for the investigation of lenticular printing display; however, it remains a challenge to make large-area periodic structures of perovskite materials especially with a feature size of wavelength scale.

Recently, Chuang Zhang,Yong Sheng Zhao from Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Yuchen Wu from Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and their colleagues fabricated lead halide perovskite periodic structures via a space-confined solution growth method. The spatial resolution could be down to hundreds of nanometers while the substrate size up to several centimetres.

These structures were able to not only modulate the reflection of visible light, but also control the angle of light emission from hybrid perovskites. More importantly, the low-threshold lasing based on distributed feedback was observed from the periodic structures, and its narrow line-width offered possibility to realise the lenticular printing laser display, according to the wavelength-dependent outcoupling of emission colours.

A prototype of laser display panels was then realised based on the mixed halide perovskites, in which the green and red coloured images were obtained at high and low angles respectively. This work would shed light on the design and fabrication of perovskites materials for new types of display techniques.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
