Mojo Vision details its microLED microdisplay technology

Last month AR developer Mojo Vision announced that as it finds it challenging to raise more funds, it is changing its focus to develop its microLED display technology, and canceling its smart contact lens system R&D project.

A couple of years ago, Mojo Vision announced that it has developed a 14,000 PPI monochrome (green) microLED microdisplay, that is the world's highest density microdisplay. The company now updated its website, which says that its technology can reach up to 28,000 PPI.

Researchers develop the world's highest density and smallest microLED arrays, using 2D material based transfer

Researchers from the US and Korea, led by MIT, developed full-color vertically-stacked microLEDs that achieve the highest array density (5100 PPI) and the smallest size (4 µm) reported to date.

To end up with such high resolution and small microLED chip size, the researchers used a 2D materials based layer transfer (2DLT) technique. The resulting microLEDs, that have near-submicron thickness, are grown on 2D material-coated substrates, removed, and then stacked.

Lumens developed a monolithic stacked RGB microLED epiwafer technology

Specialized Korea-based LED developer Lumens announced that it has developed a Monolithic RGB epitaxial wafers for micro-LED display production. The new technology stacks the three color LEDs on on top of the other on the wafer.

A comparison between Lumen's stacked RGB transfer process (bottom) and the standard process (top)

A stacked microLED architecture improves the performance, while also making the transfer process more productive. The company says that its design will offer a dramatic reduction in the production costs - especially the transfer process, which is reduced to a third (in terms of number of transfer steps), while also doing all the process from a single wafer.
