    This paper shows that the external quantum efficiency, as well as the luminous efficiency of WOLEDs, is increasing continuously. This is mainly owing to the development of phosphorescent dopants and the optimization of device structure. Presently, the luminous efficiency of WOLEDs exceeds that of incandescent lamps (typically 5-18 lm/W). Therefore, they could soon offer new possibilities of lighti... View full abstract»

    This article deals with the development of extra large screen displays usingplasma tube technology. Plasma display panels (PDPs) created a new market for large-screen flat displays featuring real and impressive images, and this market continues to grow. The PDP has essential advantages over the LCD, such as high-speed response with emissive components, an extensive viewing angle, easy manufacturin... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the authors have developed a wide color gamut WXGA LCD monitor with a color calibrator. We have successfully developed a six-primary-color liquid crystal display (LCD) using six-color light-emitting diodes (LEDs). More specifically, a prototype of a six-primary-color LCD having a color gamut of 170% or wider than that of conventional techniques has been constructed. Furthermore, thi... View full abstract»

    Flexible displays using plastic film substrates are key devices for ubiquitous and universal services of digital broadcasting because of their mobile characteristics, low-cost productivity, and flexibility of viewing style. Polymer organic light-emitting devices (POLEDs) and ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) films composed of FLCs and polymer networks are promising display devices and materials f...

    This article identified three electrical mechanisms that cause bearing damage. The three sources of bearing currents are electromagnetic induction (circulating current), electrostatic EDM coupled sources (mechanical or electrical coupled), and ground sources (backfeeding). This also presented field test measurements related to bearing damage. A field methodology was presented to identify electrica... View full abstract»

    Traditionally, electric generators, driven by an aircraft's main propulsion engines or by a gas turbine (GT) auxiliary power unit (APU), have supplied the electrical needs of commercial aircraft. In flight, the marginal efficiency of electric power generated by the main engines and their generators is at most 30-40%, whereas on the ground with the engines shut off, the average fuel efficiency of t...

    Both the IEEE 1584-2002 statistical and Wilkins' semi- empirical arc models can accurately predict arc current and incident energies. The Wilkins model appears to be a better arc model because the formulation is based on physical observations, and the major parameters affecting arc current and incident energy are identified and quantified. The Wilkins model also predicts arc current and especially... View full abstract»
