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.
