The emergence of flat panel display (FPD) technology has been a distinguishing characteristic of life early in the 21st century. From the very beginning of this new era, the success of the thin profile and enhanced viewing characteristics of FPD has been dependent on maintaining stress birefringence in the glass substrate and other assemblies at ultra low levels. Exicor® measurement instrumentation is the birefringence metrology platform of choice in manufacturing plants worldwide for assuring acceptable levels of stress in FPD glass.
GEN series Exicor models are available for various size glass sheets in both automated and semi-automated configurations.
Further along in the FPD manufacturing process, assembled liquid crystal display (LCD) modules are designed to perform within specific polarization parameters. Exicor technology provides documented assurance that total LCD module performance is within polarization and birefringence specifications.
