At the 2013 International CES, Sharp showcased for the first time in the U.S. its latest display technology: IGZO (which is an acronym for Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide), a compound that replaces the amorphous silicon typically used in thin-film transistors’ active layer. The company said it will be the first to mass-produce IGZO displays, and it has partnered with Corning, which has developed a special glass based on its Lotus glass technology that can withstand high-temperature processing.
