PhD Student Wanlong ZHANG Received Distinguished Student Paper Award in ICDT 2018

PhD student Wanlong ZHANG received Distinguished Student Paper Award in the International Conference on Display Technology (ICDT) 2018 for his work on semiconducting Nanorod alignment.

In the manuscript entitled “Larger-Scale In-Cell Semiconductor Nanorods Orientation Layer for the Liquid Crystal Displays,” a new approach is used to fabricate a composite film of Nanorods and Liquid Crystal Polymer that, on being illuminated by the blue light, emits the polarized white light, and therefore, improves the color saturation and optical performance of the LCD. The same layer, because of the in-cell configuration, also works as an alignment layer for the Liquid crystals. The proposed approach improves the LCD performance without any significant change in the LCD structure.


About ICDT

International Conference on Display Technology (ICDT) 2018 was held in Guangzhou, China during April 9-12,2018. It was sponsored by Society for Information Display (SID), hosted jointly by the SID Beijing Chapter, SID Taipei Chapter and SID Hong Kong Chapter in 2018. ICDT 2018 attracted nearly 1000 attendees, of which more than 100 overseas attendees. The Conference has become a premier conference for academic, industry, and business leaders to meet, publish results and share knowledge of the information display.

ICDT is a platform to exchange ideas between displays professional and to establish collaboration with broad spectrum of researchers and key industry players around the world. The Conference topics cover a wide range of new display technology as well as the latest development of manufacturing technologies throughout the Asia region and especially in China.
