Liquid crystal displays are everywhere in our daily lives.
We have been conducting development of liquid crystal displays since 1985.

In 1998, we announced CGS technology with Sharp Corporation through joint development.
CGS technology is widely used in displays of such products as cellular phones. By forming continuous crystal grain boundary at atomic level, CGS technology offers high electron mobility, which is about 600 times higher than the electron mobility of conventional amorphous silicon and about three times higher than that of the average low temperature polysilicon (LTPS).
