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 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.

The MicroLED Industry Association to host two topical technology webinars, focused on QDs and ITRI

The MicroLED Industry Association announced two new topical webinars, private events for association members. This is in addition to the upcoming Perovskite webinar and AR webinar.

The first webinar is focused on quantum dots (QD) technologies. In this webinar, we hope to learn more about the state-of-the-art QD and color conversion R&D, with a focus of course on applications in the microLED industry. The event will take place on March 6th, and here's the agenda:

  • Prof. Dmitri V. Talapin: world-leading QD researcher from the University of Chicago, who will update on the latest QA research
  • Nanosys: leading QD developer (speaker TBD)
  • GE: "Phosphor converted miniLEDs and microLEDs based displays" (MicroLED Association member)
  • QustomDot: "InP-based quantum dots for color conversion in microLED applications" (MicroLED Association member)

DSCC: LGD to build a microLED backplane production line for Apple, will be ready by the end of 2024

Apple's involvement in the microLED display market is not a secret, and rumors over the years suggested that the company's first microLED display will be adopted in a smartwatch project.A couple of weeks ago we heard estimates that Apple is working to produce a 2.1" microLED display, to be adopted in the next Watch Ultra device, due in late 2023 or (more likely in 2024).

DSCC's Ross Young gives an update today, saying that according to his information, LG Display is building a small production line that will make microLED backplanes for Apple. The line will begin operation in the second half of 2024, which means that the watch device itself will be released in 2025. This timeline makes more sense than an early launch in 2023.

Sundiode and Soft-EPI successfully grew a monolithic all-InGaN stacked-RGB LED structure

Stacked-RGB microLED microdisplay developed Sundiode announced that it has achieved the successful growth of a monolithic, all-InGaN RGB LED structure on a single sapphire wafer. This structure was developed in collaboration with Soft-EPI.

Sundiode's epitaxial technology enables stacked-RGB LEDs with multiple junctions, capable of emitting RGB colors independently. This structure makes it easier to produce ultra-high density microdisplays.
