Carbon Nanotube Electrophoretic Display From Samsung

Samsung Demos A Carbon Nanotube Based Electrophoretic Display


Thanks to athlonkmf for pointing this out to us!


Seems that Samsung has been working with Unidym's "carbon nanotube-based color active matrix electrophoretic display (EPD) e-paper" and is demonstrating a prototype unit at the International Meeting on Information Display (iMiD) conference in Korea.

This seems to be aimed more at computer monitors presently, but the applications for e-reading and mobile devices in general are obvious.

Quote:
"Our ongoing successful collaboration with Samsung Electronics has delivered yet another world’s first achievement this year," said Arthur L. Swift, Unidym’s president and CEO. "In May of this year Samsung demonstrated the world’s first 2.3 inch black and white active matrix EPD made with carbon nanotubes, and now they have demonstrated the first color large scale EPD e-paper device, in an A4 format. This accomplishment marks a strong beginning to the second year of our joint development agreement to drive technology leadership between our companies in incorporating our carbon nanotube transparent electrodes into current display technologies."
Does sound promising, doesn't it?

sounds almost like the article I once read about research into a 3D TV without the use of glasses!

Interesting indeed, let's see where they'll be heading off to!

Lots of potential applications for nanotubes. For another, see http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2008/1...-material.html

The trick, as with most prototype stuff, is figuring out how to make them economically in quantity.
