We report high resolution (873 x 500), active-matrix, GaN-based LED microdisplays with a pixel pitch of 10 μm. They exhibit the highest resolution for the smallest pixel pitch ever reported for GaN microdisplays. High-density GaN μLED arrays were first patterned at 10-μm pitch on sapphire substrates. Arrays were then hybridized on CMOS active-matrix using the microtube technology. Blue and green monochrome prototypes have been realized. Full video, high-resolution images have been obtained. The performance of these GaN-based microdisplays make them suitable for a wide range of applications from augmented reality and head-up displays to pico- and compact projectors.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
