About this book

Introduction

The Handbook of Visual Display Technology is a unique work offering a comprehensive description of the science, technology, economic and human interface factors associated with the displays industry. An invaluable compilation of information, the Handbook will serve as a single reference source with expert contributions from over 150 international display professionals and academic researchers. All classes of display device are covered including LCDs, reflective displays, flexible solutions and emissive devices such as OLEDs and plasma displays, with discussion of established principles, emergent technologies, and particular areas of application. The wide-ranging content also encompasses the fundamental science of light and vision, image manipulation, core materials and processing techniques, display driving and metrology.

About the editors

Dr Janglin (John) Chen is a Vice President of Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Taiwan, and the General Director of ITRI’s Display Technology Center. Prior to his present assignment, Dr. Chen was a Research Fellow of Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, New York, where he held many research, product development, commercialization and managerial positions from 1982 to 2006, and is the author of sixty technical reports, and 31 issued US Patents. A native of Taiwan, Dr. Chen holds a B.Sc. degree from National Tsing Hua University (1975), and a Ph.D. degree from Polytechnic University in Brooklyn, New York (1982). In ITRI, Dr. Chen and his staff scientists and engineers are focusing on new display and enabling technology research, including flexible displays, substrates, inorganic and organic TFTs. Dr. Chen currently also has the appointment of Adjunct Professor with Display Institute of National Chiao-Tung University, and is the Chairman of Taiwan Display Material & Device Association (TDMDA).

Dr Wayne Cranton, Reader in Visual Technology at Nottingham Trent University has been working in displays research since 1991, is the head of ICT in the School of Computing and Informatics and is a founding partner of the UK DisplayMasters Programme.  As the Head of the Displays Research Group at Nottingham Trent, he has developed a novel high intensity electroluminescent technology for use in near to eye displays, and is working on laser processing techniques for use in flexible display fabrication.  Building on the technological research, Dr Cranton has an interest in information visualisation techniques and has recently been working on the use of 3D immersive environments.

Mark Fihn currently heads his own consulting company called VeritaVis, where he supports the flat panel display industry based on his expertise related to notebook PCs, Tablet PCs, touch technologies, the LCD TV market, and display related human factors, including high resolution and wide aspect ratios. Veritas et Visus is part of this consultancy, enabling Mark to reach a broader audience in association with his research activities. Prior to VeritaVis, Mark worked for 3 years at the market research firm DisplaySearch. He additionally participated for 15 years in computer system and LCD-related procurement at Texas Instruments and Dell Computer while living in the United States and Taiwan. He has been active in many display-related areas, most specifically in publicly championing industry-wide adoption of high resolution displays, notebook LCD standardization, and video sub-system integration. Mark was educated at St. Olaf College (Northfield, Minnesota), the American Graduate School of International Management, (Phoenix, Arizona); St. Edward’s University, (Austin, Texas), and in the University of Texas at Austin’s doctoral program in International Business. Most recently, Mark has been an active supporter and lecturer at the DisplayMasters degree program in the UK, contributing course lectureships at Cambridge University, Dundee University, and Nottingham Trent University.
