Zikon’s display technology uses nano-droplets of colored ink to create images on paper like substrates.  Images can be changed by application of low voltages, which move the polarizable nano-droplets within the â??paperâ? substrate under a combination of dipolar and/or electrophoretic forces.  Unlike traditional electrophoretic e-paper displays, the technology requires no microencapsulation of the droplets, and is amenable to reflective as well as transmissive/transparent displays.  Additional benefits include low-voltage operation and simplified â??print-shopâ? display module manufacturing.  The technology is particularly well suited to the needs of the $20B electronic shelf label market by offering a low cost, low voltage, low power consumption display that also has a sharp, paperlike appearance.  The talk will describe our growing understanding of nano-droplet properties and the complex behaviors they can exhibit in electric fields, as well as progress toward manufacturing of low-cost shelf label displays.
