ILaCoS 2018 - The Future of Display Industry

3D-Micromac, TDMDA, and MOS Technology hosts ILaCoS 2018.Experts in the field of display fabrication meet in Hsinchu, Taiwan on Feb 1, 2018
Following the success of the previous ILaCoS events in Asia and Europe, 3D-Micromac AG, TDMDA (Taiwan Flat panel Display Materials and Device Association), and MOS Technology Inc. are going to organize the well-established ILaCoS conference in Hsinchu, Taiwan on Feb 1, 2018.
The agenda of the symposium will balance industrial applications, scientific themes and business opportunities with the focus of future display technologies including:

  • MicroLED displays
  • OLED displays
  • Multifunction displays and
  • Flexible displays

As in previous years, industrial representatives and research institutions will give an insight into their latest developments and present future-orientated manufacturing technologies. An intense dialogue between users from different fields of application will be stimulated.

The Event Schedule

Welcome Remark

09:20 - 09:25

Welcome and Introduction

09:25 am - 09:45 am

Keynote: Technology Advances in Flexible Displays

09:45 - 10:30

In recent years, technologies to enable flexible displays have progressed rapidly in many industrial and research laboratories. One of the main applications is to target the handheld displays, such as those used for smart phones, which needs to be thin, rugged, and light-weight.

Display Technologies And Market Outlook

10:30 - 11:00

TFT LCD, including a-Si , Oxide and LTPS, has been recognized as the leading display technologies, not only because of its maturity, great economic scale, lower cost, but also because the LCD technology continue to evolve with the better picture performance and more design-advanced form factor. However, the flexible feature help OLED to start to penetrate from the mobile application.

Conquering the MOCVD Challenges of Micro LED Display Technology

11:30 - 12:00

Owing to its low power consumption, high dynamic range and wide color gamut, Micro LED Display Technology has the potential to outperform the incumbents LCD and OLED Displays for applications, such as wearables, smartphones and television displays to billboard size screens.

Flexible OLED Lighting - Opportunities, Challenges and Solutions

12:00 - 12:30

Beside to display technology, OLED also has unlikely potential for lighting applications. Where extremely thin, flexible or transparent light sources are desired, OLED can exploit its potential as a supplement to the LED. The improvement of flexible OLED is currently the focus of worldwide research activities.

Laser-Based Process Technology for μLED Production

12:30 - 13:00

The talk will provide an introduction in the topic of excimer laser-based line beam processes for μLEDs or comparable devices.
Starting with the basics on the design of a beam path, the impact of substrate materials on the laser process window will be explained. Particularly, the impact of the surface quality of the bonded wafers on the beam scattering is presented and compared to results based on optical simulations.
Furthermore, a solution for the compensation of said influence will be presented and its integration in the workflow to an industrially feasible solution will be discussed.

FPD Production of Flexible Oxide TFT Circuits on GEN2 Substrate

14:00 - 14:30

In this presentation, we show our engineering progress in building an FPD line (GEN2 plate, 47x37cm2) purposed for new, non-display applications. Low-cost integrated circuits (ICs) for IoT, biometric sensors and imagers are just a few examples.

Excimer Laser Processing For Advanced and Emerging Displays

14:30 - 15:00

The display technology has seen dramatic improvements over the years and today we are used to stunning picture quality on our TV sets and handheld mobile devices. Flexible OLED displays are creating a wave in the market for the variety of mobile displays. In addition, several emerging display technologies based on LCD, OLED, µLED and Quantum Dots are under development.

Equipment and Technology for Flexible and Organic Electronics Manufacturing in S2S and R2R

15:30 - 16:00

The talk will discuss these requirements and possible solutions from an equipment manufacturer’s point of view and present equipment concepts and components which have been tailored for these needs.

Processing Of Advanced Displays by Ultra-Short Pulse Laser

16:0 - 16:30

In this presentation, we will highlight the processes based on ultra-short pulse lasers as used in mass production today and that pave the way to the emerging displays. These include the cutting of glass and sapphire using filamentation by SmartCleave, the cutting of flexible substrates, the patterning of metal and polymer substrates and more.
