Interpixel uniformity is critical to image quality, and is hard to be improved by structural reformation of emissive elements because of nonuniformity in luminance characteristics of subpixels in self-emissive device like the carbon nanotube field emission display (CNT-FED). In this paper, we discuss the improvement of the interpixel uniformity by individually controlling the luminance of all subpixels in a display panel. We propose a prototype CNT-FED with improved interpixel uniformity using luminance correction circuitry. The analysis of interpixel uniformity with the proposed luminance correction circuit shows that the index of interpixel uniformity increases about 8% with only about 10% luminance reduction ratio that is a relatively small penalty compared to the enhancement of the interpixel uniformity. The proposed correction method can also be used to ensure improvement of the interpixel uniformity in large-size CNT-FED panels.
