Sony Corporation will start mass production of a full-color Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display, which will be first implemented in the new Sony CLIE PEG-VZ90 personal entertainment handheld we reported about yesterday.

A OLED display is a self-luminous display that does not require a back-light, offering high contrast ratio, a quick response time and wide viewing angle-all in a package slimmer than current LCD modules. Sony used their Super Top Emission technology for better brightness and greater color gamut. Sony says that these translate into image quality and clarity that could previously viewed only on CRT (cathode ray tube) displays.
The new Sony 3.8 inch, full-color OLED measures is 2.14 mm thin. The resolution is 480x320 (HVGA) with 262,144 colors. Contrast ratio is Approx. 1000 : 1, compared to a Sony LCD which has about 100:1 this is quite a difference.

What is Sony's Super Top Emission:
As the name implies, Super Top Emission leads light emission from the upper side of the organic material, realizing a brightness level of 150cd per square meter. Also, by optimizing the thickness of the organic layer for each of the color components, RGB, Sony realized multi-interference of reflecting light. Additionally, with the cavity multi-reflection interference structure which enables emission of colors with high purity, bright and brilliant color gamut comparable to that of CRT is realized.
