Light-emitting polymer (LEP) technology from Cambridge Display Technology (CDT, Cambridge, England) may soon find its way into commercial flexible displays. DuPont (Anaheim, CA) and CDT entered into a two-year joint development agreement to supply plastic substrates coated with LEP material to electronics manufacturers in large volume within three years. CDT holds a patent on the LEP technology. Displays will initially be incorporated into products such as VCRs, CD players, mobile phones, lighted signs, and alarm clocks. LEP technology can be produced with existing manufacturing equipment, and still offer the low voltage benefits of traditional light-emitting diodes and the large area patternability associated with current LCDs.
