Electronic paper (e-Paper) has drawn much attention for its promise to
curb the overuse of paper, such as printed matters, and office
documents, etc. The one important feature of e-Paper displays is that
they do not require backlight to operate, providing a power saving,
paper-like reading experience. Also, their bi-stability enables zero
power consumption for still image display.

To meet the future needs for digital life style and for ‘greener’
display panels, ITRI has focused research on flexible display
technologies. For digital life, flexible EPD, OLED will address the
portability, while flexible touch is to enhance user-friendly interface.
For ‘green panel,’ large-area, roll-to-roll processable Ch-LCD will
deliver power saving, material and cost advantages.

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 Joining ITRI, Dr. Chen
was a Research Fellow of Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, New York,
where he held many R&D managerial positions from 1982 to 2006, and is
the author of sixty technical articles, and 33 issued US Patents. A
native of Taiwan, Dr. Chen holds a Bachelor degree from Tsing Hua
University, a Ph.D. degree from Polytechnic University in Brooklyn, New
York, and is a graduate of Stanford Executive Program, Graduate School
of Business, Stanford University.
