European firms collaborate on nano-enhanced displays

Feb. 11, 2005 — Cambridge Display Technology (Nasdaq: OLED) and ILFORD Imaging Switzerland announced they have joined forces in a project to develop more optically efficient display devices.

Cambridge Display is developing light emitting polymers for uses in a wide range of electronic display products used for information management, communications and entertainment.

ILFORD is a manufacturer of precision coated, ink jet printing consumables. The two companies have found that certain nanoporous structures have potentially valuable properties when applied to polymer light emitting diode displays.

The project — which will complete its initial proof-of-principle phase by the end of the first quarter of 2005 — is designed to evaluate and quantify the performance advantages that may be available from the companies’ approach. Work is ongoing and centered at Cambridge Display’s technology development center near Cambridge, UK.
