Attempts to create a transparent screen for electronic devices have already taken a great many, and recently the company Japan Display Inc presented its version of such a device. The display of the Japanese company has a transparency factor of 80% and can be used in a variety of areas: from creating windows to devices with augmented reality.
The coefficient of transparency of the new type of display is almost twice as high as in almost all similar devices presented earlier. This was achieved thanks to new production technology. For example, the level of transparency of liquid crystal displays using a polarizer and a light filter does not exceed 30%, and in OLED displays using such technologies, it is possible to achieve a transparency coefficient of only 45%.
Such a high value of the transparency coefficient was achieved due to the use of a new structure of the device of the screen itself, in which there is no plate made of a light polarizing material and a light filter. At the same time, Japan Displays still keeps a secret technology, thanks to which it was possible to achieve such impressive results. But at the moment it is already known that the display is built on liquid crystals. More detailed technical specifications of the developers promise to be revealed later this year within the framework of the SID (The Society for Information Display) conference, which will be held in the US in March this year, where the latest version of the device will also be demonstrated.
At the moment, the size of the prototype of the transparent display is 4 inches diagonally at a resolution of 300 x 300 pixels and a density of 117 dots per inch. Devices with similar displays can be used as screens of electronic books, watches, smartphones, augmented reality systems, billboards, shop windows, smart windows and much more.
