FPD Lithography Equipment for Small and Medium-Size Panels

Equipped with OLED displays, smartphones are becoming more and more sophisticated and achieving higher and higher resolutions. FPD (flat-panel display) lithography equipment supports the production of these high-resolution displays. Canon’s FPD lithography equipment utilizes a concave mirror measuring 1.5 meters in diameter ― developed in-house ― that can expose circuits with a linewidth of 1.2 micrometers (about 1/75 the width of a human hair) onto large glass substrates. Making possible the on-shot exposure of 200 six-inch smartphone displays, this equipment contributes to increased productivity for display production.

FPD Lithography Equipment for Large Panels

Television screens continue to grow larger alongside the accelerating shift to 4K. Supporting this advancement are the flat-panel display (FPD) lithography systems used to manufacture large, high-resolution LCD and organic LED (OLED) panels. In this video, we introduce the Canon technology helping to improve efficiency in panel manufacturing ― including an FPD lithography system that supports one-shot exposure of six 55-inch panels with thin-film transistor (TFT) circuitry capable of resolving Line/Space (L/S) features of 2.0 μm (approximately 1/50 the width of a human hair).

Fluorite Lenses-The Ultimate High-Performance Lenses

Fluorite is the ideal mineral for correcting chromatic aberration. However, no naturally occurring fluorite can meet all the requirements for a camera lens. Based on our belief in making use of its own abilities to create whatever is necessary, Canon overcame the numerous barriers that stood before us to successfully realize the mass production of fluorite lenses. Canon is now the only manufacturer to incorporate fluorite in its auto-focus lenses for SLR cameras.
