In-Display Fingerprint Sensors Finally Coming To LCD Panels "While optical fingerprint scanners have been present in many smartphones over the past few months, these sensors only work alongside more expensive OLED displays. A key reason for the inability of in-display fingerprint sensors to work with LCDs is the failure of the scanner to detect light through the screen." via Android Headlines

Lab develops quantum dot polymer for next-gen screens "The material is a thiol-yne nanocomposite polymer tailored to hold light-emitting quantum dots, tiny semiconductors whose size and composition can be precisely tuned to produce bright, clear, and energy-efficient colors." via Phys.org

New Red Phosphor to Improve LED Energy Efficiency Co-Developed by University of Innsbruck and Osram "A research team at the University of Innsbruck, Austria cooperated with Osram Opto Semiconductors to develop a new red phosphor with excellent luminescence properties which can make LED lighting more energy-efficient." via LED Inside
