Mark Leadbeater, Programme Manager of the EPSRC Centre for Large-Area Electronics, will be presenting an overview of the Centre at the Future Display Technologies and Production Demand event held at the Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge, on 1 April 2014. The event is co-sponsored by the EPSRC Centre in Ultra Precision and the Centre for Advanced Photonics and Electronics.
The display technologies that are available from plastic/organic electronic structures may be different from the traditional “monitor” type displays people first think of when looking at this technology. Instead, the display may be a slow moving or even static type (e.g. electronic wallpaper) and/or offer different functionality such as fitted to non-flat and free-form surfaces, may also be wearable or integrated into clothing. These different applications of display technology come with their own production demands, that are likely to be equally different to those associated with traditional glass based displays. This event intends to examine these issues and allow researchers and industrial developers a chance to exchange ideas and find out what is the current state-of-the-art in these emerging areas.
