Title:


    Optical Sensors Embedded within AMLCD Panel: Design and Applications

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 17


Description:


    A new approach to data input into AMLCD panels has been conceived and demonstrated. This integrates an array of TFT optical sensors into the a-Si backplane of the AMLCD. The concept, design considerations, and specific applications such as touch panel input, hand recognition, and image capture will be discussed.
