Display industry predictions have all been saying that 2020 would be the big year for 5G, and it looks like they were right! Networks are rolling out around the globe, new 5G-enabled phones are launching. In this post we look at the potential impact of 5G on display devices like phones, televisions, and AR/VR headsets.
As emissive display types such as OLED and microLED emerge into the market place, imaging colorimeters provide the most effective solution for quality inspection, enabling display makers to measure and correct every pixel and sub-pixel.
Automobiles are getting smarter with new driver assistance systems that help us back up, park, avoid collisions, and more. Automotive headlights are also getting smarter, as sensor systems combine with new LED and other illumination technologies to adapt to variable driving situations. Ensuring these new headlamp assemblies meet industry standards and function as designed requires specialized lighting measurement solutions.
Human perception is the ultimate standard for determining the visual quality of a display. However, using human inspection can be problematic because of the statistical variation between observers. Advances in photometric technology and image processing in the last decade have provided an inspection alternative that can match the level of visual acuity of the human eye to detect display defects, but with the speed and consistency of automation.

MicroLED (µLED) displays offer the potential of wider color gamut, higher contrast ratio, and deeper blacks than LCD and OLED displays. To realize the potential of microLED display technology, however, a number of production challenges must be overcome to ensure the quality and uniformity of display devices.
Facial recognition is rapidly moving into many areas of our daily lives: controlling access to smart phones and devices, improving home security, enhancing automotive safety, and more. Many of the newest facial recognition applications and products were on display at CES, along with some discussion of consumer privacy concerns that accompany growing use of the technology.
Virtual and augmented reality devices past, present, and future were the focus of the recent SPIE AR VR MR Conference. Trends in evidence at the conference included a wealth of new innovations in device hardware and optics, using AR to supplement human vision, and the emergence of microLED displays.
In honor of the UN’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11, 2020, Radiant continues our series on Physics Heroes and Heroines by profiling a few of the many female physicists, mathematicians, and scientists that we admire.
This week Radiant joins thousands of professionals in the optics, photonics, lighting, camera, lens, display, AR/VR, and related industries in San Francisco for SPIE's AR/VR/MR Conference and Photonics West, where we'll have demos of our AR/VR display metrology solution, and our near-infrared (NIR) intensity measurement device.
MicroLED displays were in abundance at the 2020 CES show in Las Vegas, including some of the largest screens ever exhibited alongside some of the smallest micro displays. Learn more in this wrap-up of the microLED presence on the show floor.
