Novel Digital Media with
Electronic Inks
Abstract: Reflective display technologies aim to enable the delivery of dynamic digital content to devices that have the look and feel of ink on paper. At HP, we are developing novel print-like architecture and electronic inks leveraging our printing heritage to provide reflective color image quality comparable to the Specifications for Newsprint Advertising Production (SNAP) standard. We are approaching the challenge of generating bright high-quality reflective color images from the perspective of printing by stacking electro-optic layers of subtractive colorants to address every available color at every location. Using in-plane optical effects, our novel media technology provides fast switching between clear and color states. Thin, flexible electronic media based on this technology has been fabricated by imprinting three-dimensional microscale structures with a continuous roll-to-roll (R2R) manufacturing platform. HP's combination of novel device architecture, proprietary inks, and R2R manufacturing platform enables the required attributes for electronic media such as flexibility, robustness, low power, transparency, print-quality color, and scalability at low cost. The innovations described in this paper are applicable to electronic skins for customizable electronic surfaces and are currently being developed further for electronic paper and signage markets.

Bio: Dr. Zhang-Lin Zhou is a Principal Scientist at Hewlett Packard Labs in Palo Alto, California, USA. He is one of the leading scientists working on the project of "E-Print" program, which aims to develop portable, personal interactive electronic papers. He has over 25 years of experiences on a wide variety of different chemistry fields including organic/polymer synthesis, OLED material, electrophoretic display and pigment dispersions. He has published over 50 peer-reviewed international journal articles, 50 meeting abstracts. He has written 6 review articles and two book chapters. He has 25 issued US patents and 50 more US and European patent applications pending.
