Researchers develop a new method to deposit high-brightness green InGaN microLED arrays

Researchers from the University of Sheffield a new fabrication process for green InGaN microLEDs that achieves high brightness compact microLED arrays.

Today most green InGaN microLEDs are produced by combining a standard photolithography technique with subsequent dry-etching processes on a standard III-nitride LED wafer. The researchers found a way to avoid the dry-etching processes which damage the surface the resulting LEDs. In the new process, the InGaN stack is direectly grown within pre-patterned micro-hole arrays through a thin (500nm) SiO2 layer serving as a GaN template over the epitaxial wafer.

Rohinni demonstrates its latest MicroLED prototypes at CES 2020

Rohinni demonstrated its latest technology and prototypes at CES 2020, and this interesting video shows the company's booth and provides an interview with the company's CEO.

On display you can see some flexible lighting prototypes, an LCD display backlighting unit that uses mini LEDs, automotive solutions developed by the Rohinni and Magma JV, keyboard backlights from its Luumii JV and finally some microLED display prototypes made by the BOE Pixey JV.

Mojo Vision develops microLED-based AR contact lenses

In June 2019, AR developer Mojo Vision announced that it developed a 14k sub-pixel PPI Micro-LED microdisplay, to power its upcoming AR platform. The company now revealed that its technology actually embeds the microLED microdisplay in a contact lens.

Plessey demonstrated its latest microLED displays and technologies at CES 2020

UK-based GaN-On-Si MicroLED microdisplay developer Plessey Semiconductor demonstrated several new microLED technologies at CES 2020. First up we have a Head Up Display (HUD) for automotive applications, that is based on a 0.7" blue monochrome MicroLED display:

This same display was demonstrated at SID DisplayWeek 2019, and uses JDC's silicon backplane. The next display is a native red InGaN microLED. This is the first time this display was demonstrated:

iBeam Materials shows how to deposit both FETs and microLEDs directly on flexible metal foil substrates

iBeam Materials announced that it had successfully demonstrated the ability to produce high-performance GaN Field-Effect Transistors (FETs) directly on thin, flexible and rollable metal foil substrates.

This new technology complements iBeam's microLED deposition technology (demonstrated in the video above), and these FETs can be integrated with microLED chips in a side-by-side architecture. Both FETs and MicroLEDs are deposited on the flexible substrate without any transfer process.

Meet the MicroLED-Info team at MWC 2020

The MicroLED-Info team is excited to announce its attendance at the Mobile World Congress 2020 on February 24-27 in Barcelona, Spain. The Mobile World Congress (MWC) is the world's largest gathering for the mobile industry, organized by the GSMA. It features a large exhibition, conference programme and networking opportunities.

We are looking forward for a great event and great new microLED prototypes and technologies on display.

JBD demonstrates a 3 million nits microLED microdisplay

Shanghai-based Micro-LED microdisplay developer JBD unveiled two new Micro-LED microdisplay prototypes. First up is the JBD5UM720P-G, a 0.31" 720p (1780x720, 5,000 PPI) display that features a typical brightness of 3 million nits (!). This is a monochrome green (530 nm) display.

The second display, the JBD25UMFHD-B is a higher density display, at 10,000 PPI it achieves a 2560x1440 resolution in the same 0.31" size. This is a monochrome blue (455 nm) display that has a brightness of 150,000 nits. The display's refresh rate is 360Hz.

ITRI demonstrates a 16.7" tiled microLED display produced directly on PCB backplanes

Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) demonstrated a 16.7" microLED display "module" that was produced by directly mass transferring micro-LED chips onto a PCB backplane.
