Display includes a range of applications for electronic devices that contain light emitting diodes (LEDs), organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), and micro-LEDs. This sector supports such consumer industries as headsets for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR), wearable technology, flexible and foldable displays, and ultra-high definition television, and is continuously innovating as a result of demand for unique displays for a variety of commercial, military, and consumer uses.
The LEDs, OLEDs, and micro-LEDs at the core of display devices require thin film coatings for myriad reasons including improving characteristics such as light transmission, electric conduction, reflectivity, hardness, or durability. These thin films protect displays from environmental factors such as abrasion, moisture, dust and heat. Thin film deposition for displays is a demanding process requiring a clean environment and production-level repeatable, uniform film applications to support the manufacturing requirements and remarkable quality of this industry.
Common thin film applications for displays include TCO coating and diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating. Denton Vacuum offers high-quality and consistent deposition solutions providing high throughput and good yield for all of these coating types. For more detail, select a coating method listed below.
