Better than OLED: Foscher develop new affordable display technology
Researchers have developed a new screen technology that will ensure a better representation than OLED displays. It is a thin film that can be placed on conventional LCD screens. Apple reportedly also interested in the use of technology.

In the world of display technology, OLED displays currently valid measure of all things. They are used not only in smartphones and tablets , but also in large screens such as TVs. Thus presented, inter alia, LG and Samsung big 55-inch TVs with OLED screen on the last CES and IFA .
Japanese researchers at the Photonics Research Institute, Keio University in Tokyo, however, have now developed a special film that can be put on ordinary LCD screens and is designed to improve image quality dramatically. The fact achievable detailed and bright display to the high contrast of the OLED screens allegedly still exceed. This blog reports the Japanese smartphone Datacider citing the Japanese newspaper Nihon Keizai Shimbun (Nikkei).
As the picture above shows, it should allow the film even realize when looking through a pair of sunglasses and a bright crisp image. The quality of the display also does not hang from the perspective of the viewer. Particularly is also the material from which the film is obtained. This is resin of which also plastic bottles. Because of this raw material is very low, could the widespread utilization of this technique to reduce the cost of production.
Used in Apple devices?
Some display manufacturers have already decided to use the film. How Nikkei has learned also signaled interest in Apple technology. Mass production starts in cooperation with the company Toyobo in April.
Frankly I call BS. bottom line is its just a material placed upon lcd to make it look better.
Years ago, in the 1950's, early 1960's, a black and white TV could be converted to "color" by purchasing a screen that was attached/glued to your b&w tv screen. It had a blue hue top, a green hue middle and a reddish hue bottom. They were available from ads in the back of comic books, just like the "X-ray" glasses ads that allowed you to see thru clothing. Toyobo's special "screen" attached to LCD display for a better then OLED viewing experience is a bunch of #$%$, just like the color converter screens for b&w tvs 60 years ago.
If APPL and others are seriously considering this, they are more desperate than I thought! Frankly, I'm a bit surprised SeekingAlpha would even suggest this was a reason for what turned out to be a slight correction after Friday's massive run.
