  • Publication number: 20230296910
    Abstract: An optical device with less influence of stray light is provided. The optical device is thin and includes a half mirror, a first lens, a retardation plate, a reflective polarizing plate, and a second lens. In the optical device, a geometric phase lens which has negative and positive refractive power is used as the first lens, whereby images can be focused after magnified optically. Thus, the optical device can have a wide viewing angle. In the case where stray light occurs due to birefringence of an optical material, negative refractive power of the first lens can prevent the stray light from being focused on the eye direction. Accordingly, image degradation recognized due to stray light can be prevented.

  • Patent number: 11683952
    Abstract: There has been a problem that difference in refractive index between an opposite substrate or a moisture barrier layer provided thereover, and air is maintained large, and light extraction efficiency is low. Further, there has been a problem that peeling or cracking due to the moisture barrier layer is easily generated, which leads to deteriorate the reliability and lifetime of a light-emitting element. A light-emitting element comprises a pixel electrode, an electroluminescent layer, a transparent electrode, a passivation film, a stress relieving layer, and a low refractive index layer, all of which are stacked sequentially. The stress relieving layer serves to prevent peeling of the passivation film. The low refractive index layer serves to reduce reflectivity of light generated in the electroluminescent layer in emitting to air. Therefore, a light-emitting element with high reliability and long lifetime and a display device using the light-emitting element can be provided.

  • Patent number: 11659636
    Abstract: A display device that can display an image along a curved surface is provided. In the display device, a first display panel and a second display panel overlap each other with a light-transmitting layer provided therebetween. The light-transmitting layer is positioned on a display surface side of the first display panel, and on a side opposite to the display surface of the second display panel. The light-transmitting layer has an average transmittance of 80% or more with respect to light in the wavelength range of 450 nm to 700 nm and a refractive index higher than that of air. A display region of the first display panel overlaps a region transmitting visible light of the second display panel with the light-transmitting layer provided therebetween. It is preferred that the display region of the first display panel not overlap with a region blocking visible light of the second display panel.
