Presentation Summary

This presentation will focus on Plessey's pioneering proprietary approach to enable manufacturing of monolithic microLED arrays using gallium nitride (GaN)-on-silicon (Si) technologies to develop better optimised AR/MR and wearable displays applications. It describes the problems associated with incumbent micro-display technologies which are prohibiting the advancement of new innovative technologies which microLEDs can help solve.
