Advanced Displays: The Material Difference
Breakthroughs in advanced materials are driving the next generation of OLED, MicroLED and extended reality (XR) devices. Not surprisingly, high‐index materials are now considered an essential enabling technology for these next‐gen displays. The inks must deliver a combination of inkjet and nanoimprint performance with high RIs and strong mechanical properties. No trivial feat. Until now, conventional display manufacturing technologies relied on polymer‐ based materials. Refractive indices (RIs) for these materials typically top out at 1.5. In contrast, Pixelligent’s PixJet® and PixNIL® products deliver RIs ranging from 1.65 to 2.0. What’s more, they were engineered from the ground‐up for devices produced with inkjet printers and NIL. In his talk, Pixelligent President & CEO Craig Bandes will discuss the innovation behind the company’s materials, and having recently secured $38M in IP‐backed financing, he’ll share his experience in building a global materials company in times of unprecedented market pressures.
