  • Patent number: 11189605
    Abstract: A transparent display comprises a display substrate having a display area and a bezel area adjacent to each of at least one corresponding side of the display area. The display substrate is at least partially transparent. Light-controlling elements are disposed in, on, or over the display substrate in the display area. Display wires are disposed in, on, or over the display substrate in the display area. The display wires are electrically connected to the light-controlling elements. Bezel wires are disposed in, on, or over the display substrate in the bezel area, the bezel wires electrically connected to respective ones of the display wires. A bezel transparency in the bezel area is greater than or equal to a display transparency in the display area.

  • Patent number: 11164934
    Abstract: A tiled display structure comprises a screen support having a screen emitter side and an opposing screen back side. A black matrix comprises a patterned layer of black-matrix material disposed on the screen back side, the pattern defining pixel openings that are substantially devoid of black-matrix material. An array of tiles comprises tiles each having a tile substrate and a plurality of pixels disposed in or on the tile substrate. Each pixel comprises one or more light emitters. The one or more light emitters are each disposed to emit light through a pixel opening in the black matrix. A substantially transparent adhesive layer adheres the array of tiles to the black-matrix material.

  • Patent number: 11088121
    Abstract: A method of micro-transfer printing comprises providing a component source wafer and components disposed in, on, or over the component source wafer. A destination substrate and a stamp for transferring the components from the component source wafer to the destination substrate is provided. The component source wafer has an attribute or structure that varies across the component source wafer that affects the structure, operation, appearance, or performance of the components. A first array of components is transferred from the component source wafer to the destination substrate with a first orientation. A second array of components is transferred from the component source wafer to the destination substrate with a second orientation different from the first orientation. Components can be transferred by micro-transfer printing and different orientations can be a different rotation, overlap, interlacing, or offset.

  • Patent number: 11024608
    Abstract: An exemplary micro-device and substrate structure includes a destination substrate and one or more contact pads disposed thereon, a micro-device disposed on or over the destination substrate, and a layer of cured adhesive disposed on the destination substrate. The micro-device comprises at least one electrical contact. The at least one electrical contact is in direct electrical contact with the one or more contact pads. The adhesive layer adheres the micro-device to the destination substrate and is in contact with the one or more contact pads. An exemplary method of making a micro-device and substrate structure includes providing a destination substrate and one or more contact pads disposed thereon, coating a layer of curable adhesive, disposing a micro-device comprising at least one electrical contact on the layer and curing the layer thereby directly electrically contacting the at least one electrical contact with the one or more contact pads.

  • Publication number: 20200335380
    Abstract: An example of a method of micro-transfer printing comprises providing a micro-transfer printable component source wafer, providing a stamp comprising a body and spaced-apart posts, and providing a light source for controllably irradiating each of the posts with light through the body. Each of the posts is contacted to a component to adhere the component thereto. The stamp with the adhered components is removed from the component source wafer. The selected posts are irradiated through the body with the light to detach selected components adhered to selected posts from the selected posts, leaving non-selected components adhered to non-selected posts. In some embodiments, using the stamp, the selected components are adhered to a provided destination substrate. In some embodiments, the selected components are discarded. An example micro-transfer printing system comprises a stamp comprising a body and spaced-apart posts and a light source for selectively irradiating each of the posts with light.
