LEP

Short for Light Emitting Polymer, it is an emissive technology that emits light as a function of its electrical operation. An LEP display consists solely of the polymer material manufactured on a substrate of glass or plastic and does not require additional elements such as the backlights, filters and polarizers typical of LCDs. LEP is a platform technology that will scale from tiny devices literally millimeters in dimension to large high-definition devices that could be up to 200 inches in diameter. LEP combines the characteristics of a CRT with the performance of an LCD with low power consumption. Light Emitting Polymer technology was developed by Cambridge Display Technology, Ltd. (CDT), based in Cambridge, United Kingdom.
