SEMINAR: 8.20.10 / CREOL 102 / 11-12pm / "Active MatrixTechnologies for AMLCDs and AMOLEDs"

Active Matrix Technologies for AMLCDs and AMOLEDs CREOL 102 Friday, August 20, 2010 / 11:00am - 12:00pm

Prof. Norbert Fruehauf

Chair of Display Technology, University of Stuttgart, Germany


Active matrix addressing is the essential enabling technology for high resolution flat panel displays. The seminar will introduce the need for active matrix addressing and TFT processes and device structures employing various types of semiconductors. Specific consideration will be given to additional processing steps required for implementing entire AMLCD and AMOLED backplanes and the interplay between TFT characteristics, display media active matrix structures and addressing signals.


Prof. Norbert Fruehauf received his Ph.D. (Dr-Ing.) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Stuttgart, Germany and has more than 20 years of experience in designing and characterising liquid crystal light modulators and displays. From 1998 to 2001 he worked for Physical Optics Corporation, Torrance, California, USA, where he developed tunable micro-optic components, various display systems and integrated optical components. In 2001 he was appointed full professor heading the Chair of Display Technology at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, where he specializes in large area microelectronics for applications in flexible displays, AMOLEDs and AMLCDs and sensor arrays.

Prof. Fruehauf is a member of the SID Symposium Active Matrix Committee and serves on various other national and international scientific advisory boards, conference committees and journal editing teams.
