* "Newer techniques could replace the currently-popular liquid-crystal and electroluminescent displays
in connection with the use of quantum dots in electroluminescent displays
, a future display technology, the company said.
UV curable inks and coatings are being developed that have the potential for widescale use in portable photovoltaics, electroluminescent displays
, transdermal patches and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs).
Quantum dots technology is currently in a nascent stage and is expected to cater to multiple application areas such as in transistors, diode lasers, quantum computing, biological imaging, solid-state lighting, electroluminescent displays
and photo-voltaic cells.

The electroluminescent displays
also offer a large viewing angle of almost 180 degrees.
Electrically conducting polymers have been used in a variety of organic electronic devices including electroluminescent displays
. Typical conducting-polymer buffer layers include polyaniline and polydioxythiophenes such as poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene).
Similarly, companies such as Pelikon and elumin8 have applied inorganic materials to flexible electroluminescent displays
that involve six to eight layers, including a copper-doped phosphor.
Mr Greig joins the firm from pump and valve producer Flowserve, where he was plant manager, with more than 15 years' experience in overseeing and managing production plants for a number of companies - including Siemens, Caerphilly-based electroluminescent displays
and keypads manufacturer Pelikon, and at NatWest's credit card production facility.
next year to develop and produce organic electroluminescent displays
Eight companies print ac electroluminescent displays
and lighting on flexible plastic film, some being several meters across.
The transistors can also be combined with existing light display technologies, such as the organic light-emitting diodes, LCDs and electroluminescent displays
already used in televisions, computers and cell phones.
