Zikon's electric ink technology uses nanodroplets of colored ink to create images on paperlike substrates. Images can be changed by application of low voltages.
Paper-like displays are opening previously inaccessible segments in the display market. They are characterized by low power consumption and paper-like appearance, including ambient -light readability without a backlight and wide viewing angles.
Zikon's proprietary electric ink technology meets market demands for paper-like displays by offering high contrast and great viewability along with low voltage (logic level) operation at an exceptionally affordable cost.
Conceptually intuitive and simple to make
•Great viewability: paper-like appearance
•Rigid or flexible substrates.
•Low, logic-level, driving voltage (<3V)
•Very low manufacturing cost
•Very low power consumption.
Transmissive displays operate on the principle of dipole-dipole interactions between polarizable nanodroplets. The displays are made sandwiching an all liquid ink between two transparent electrodes. No filters, polarizers, surface treatments, or other features needed.
