According to Korean news sources, 11 people, including one prominent former Samsung engineer, have been arrested for allegedly selling secrets to one of Samsung's rival firms. The report states that a 46-year-old former SMD researcher, whose name is being withheld, was paid ~$170,000 "from the competitor in exchange for secret data on the so-called "small mask scanning" technology involved in building active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays for large televisions. Until now, AMOLED displays have mostly been used for small smart devices." The complaint indicates that the researcher... Read more...
DuPont may not strike you as a technology company. But they are, in a weird, weird way. They make a ton of chemicals and off-the-wall internal products that help compose many of the doodads that we all use in day-to-day life, but hardly do you see their named stamped on the exterior of something. Turns out, they may play a leading role in your next television. DuPont announced today that it has signed a technology licensing agreement with a leading Asian manufacturer of Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (AMOLED) display products.  The agreement will enable process technology developed...

OLED displays share the promise of low power, high def, ultra-high contrast goodness.  In fact Samsung claims their new line of AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic LED) panels boast 20X the contrast ratio of standard LCDs.  In addition, since the panels do not require any back-lighting, they consume much less power, so they are well suited for portable applications obviously.  Also, since they're based on LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, viewing angles, response times and brightness are also wonderfully impressive.  Though Samsung is currently shipping OLED-based screens...
