(hereinafter “MES” with its president Mr. Yasuhiko Katoh) has completed the development of next generation type Ion Implanter “Magic-i” of an enhanced quality and efficiency for doping proces with an eye to the large-scale production in the future of the Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (hereinafter called “AMOLED”) and has shipped its first unit to the customer recently.
AMOLED is a high performance display having high brightness, contrast and color reproducibility and is now actively adopted on a high-grade mobile phone and smart phone by the recent establishment of large-scale production technology.
