Corning Lotus NXTTM High Performance LCD & OLED Display Glass
With Corning Lotus NXT, Corning has effectively achieved the display industry’s optimized manufacturing solution for the growing OLED market.
Lotus NXT Glass is Corning’s newest edition to their specialty glass platform. It performs fantastic in low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) and oxide thin-film transistor (TFT) backplane manufacturing processes.
A third-generation glass composition for high-performance displays, Lotus NXT Glass provides industry-leading levels of low total pitch variation.
What does Total Pitch Variation mean?
TPV or Total Pitch Variation is a metric that is essential to the manufacturing of LCD and OLCD Display glass. Lotus NXT Glass outperforms incumbent products using this TPV metric by up to 60 percent.
Unpredictable movement results in yield loss. If you can predict the amount the glass shifts, then you can account for that movement with every new glass substrate.
Total Pitch = distance features move during processing within a single glass sheet.
Variation = deviation from predictable movement between multiple glass sheets.
This is great news for panel makers, because it enables Corning to provide a much better product th higher yields, and better etching performance.
Ultimately consumers benefit greatly with higher resolution, brighter displays with lower power consumption and longer battery life.
What's the difference in LED, LCD and OLED Displays
OLED: Organic Light Emitting Diode. OLED displays are solid-state devices composed of thin films of organic molecules that create light with the application of electricity.
OLED displays can be curved, thinner, or have narrower bezels, no bezels or flex and bend. An OLED display is a great solution with higher resolution, superior response time and latency.
OLEDs can provide brighter, crisper displays on electronic devices and use less power than conventional light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or liquid crystal displays (LCDs).
LED: Light-emitting Diodes. LED displays are flat panel displays that use an array of light-emitting diodes as pixels for a video display. Their brightness allows them to be used outdoors where they are visible in the sun for store signs and billboards.
LCD: Liquid-crystal display. LCD displays are an always-on backlight projects light through a liquid crystal, sandwiched between two pieces of glass. When the liquid crystal is excited by an electrical current, it lets the light of an individual pixel pass through like a shutter.
