seems like nano tube crt , will be the next wave of crt technology. Within three yrs, nano tube crt will make conventional crt tube obsolete.



Motorola Labs has unveiled a working 5-inch color video display prototype based on proprietary carbon nanotube (CNT) technology, a breakthrough technique which could create large, flat panel displays with superior quality, longer lifetimes and lower costs than current offerings.


Optimized for a large screen high-definition TV (HDTV) less than 1-inch thick, this first-of-its-kind nan emissive display (NED) 5-inch prototype harnesses the power of CNTs to fundamentally change the design and fabrication of flat panel displays.


The development of such a flat panel display is possible due to Motorola Labs' NED technology, a scalable method of growing CNTs directly on glass to enable an energy efficient design that excels at emitting electrons. Through this cost-effective process and design, Motorola showcases the potential to create longer-lasting NED flat panel displays with high brightness, excellent uniformity and color purity.


"We look forward to aligning with display manufacturers and enabling them to further this technology and develop commercially available solutions," Jim O'Connor, vice president, Motorola technology incubation and commercialization, said.


Motorola's proprietary CNT growth process provides high precision in designing and manipulating a material at its molecular level -- enhancing specific characteristics -- and, in the case of flat panel displays, producing high-definition images. The electron emission performance demonstrated by the Motorola technology exceeds that achieved to date with the application of the CNT to the cathode via an organic paste, the process used by other companies.


Motorola's working prototype demonstrates:


- operational full color 5-inch video section of a 1,280 x 720, 16:9, 42-inch HDTV;

- high quality brightness;

- bright, vivid colors using standard cathode ray tube (CRT) TV phosphors;

- display panel thickness of 3.3mm (about 1/8th of an inch);

- low cost display drive electronics (similar to LCD, much lower than plasma);

- display characteristics meet or exceed CRTs, such as fast response time, wide viewing angle, wide operation temperature.

nano technology incorp.



We have developed a FED solution which overcomes the heavy capital investment and custom manufacturing hurdles. Our solution, ("the “DreamCRT"â€) utilizes current existing TAFT and CRT manufacturing processes and equipment. As a result, our FED solution overcomes the need for heavy capital investment and for long-lead times required for the development of custom tools and manufacturing equipment. We put together an engineering team based on years of real manufacturing experience and expertise. We developed our technology with cost in mind.

Our FPD solution, the “DreamCRT, is a thin-flat display that utilizes carbon nano tube (“CNTâ€) technology which replaces the single, hot filament electron gun of conventional cathode ray tube with a planar array of CNT emitters that places a highly redundant electron source behind each sub-pixel. The DreamCRT will provide pristine picture quality, robust video response, wide viewing angels and low power consumption. Our technology incorporates conventional CRT technology with carbon nano tube and high voltage phosphor technology. Our technology allows us to realize low production costs by using conventional TFT-LCD and CRT manufacturing processes, unlike other current FED solutions. Our solution provides the best aspects of CRT and LCD technologies. Basically, the DreamCRT will alleviate the size, weight and power limitations of a conventional CRT, while providing higher picture quality, lower manufacturing cost and more efficient power consumption than LCDs.

Fascinating. Would you mind adding a link or some sort of attribution so we know where you got this from?
