We’ve seen a number of next-generation display technologies emerge in recent years, such as Sony’s “Crystal LED
,” Uni-Pixel’s time-multiplexed optical shutter
(TMOS) technology, and quantum dot LED
(QLED) display technology from LG and QD Vision, and now there’s another one to add to the mix. While displays based on the new “spintronic” OLED technology invented by physicists at the University of Utah are still some years off, the researchers say they should be brighter, cheaper and more environmentally friendly than the LEDs found in the current crop of TVs, computer displays, traffic lights and other electronic devices.
