CyberDisplays utilize high quality, single crystal silicon. This single crystal 
silicon is not grown on glass; rather, it is first formed on a silicon wafer and 
then lifted off as a thin film. The thin film is patterned into an integrated 
circuit (including the active matrix, driver circuitry and other logic circuits) 
in an integrated circuit foundry and transferred to glass, so that the transferred 
layer is a transparent fully-functional active matrix integrated circuit. 
CyberDisplay  imaging properties are a result of the formation of a liquid crystal 
layer over the transparent active matrix integrated circuit. Our manufacturing 
process offers several advantages over conventional active matrix LCD manufacturing 
approaches with regard to small form factor displays, including greater 
miniaturization, reduced cost, higher pixel density, full color capability, lower 
power consumption, and simple optical configuration.  Currently, over a hundred 
thousand CyberDisplays are shipped per month to portable consumer products, such as 
camcorders and digital still cameras.  We believe such displays would be very useful 
for internet-accessed phones when broadband wireless infrastructure is in place.

Speaker Bio:

Dr. Fan is the Chairman, CEO and President of Kopin Corporation. John C. C. Fan was 
born in Shanghai, China and raised in Hong Kong.  He came to the United States and 
attended the University of California, Berkeley.  He obtained his Bachelor of Science, 
Electrical Engineering from Berkeley.  He went to Harvard University under a Harvard 
University Fellowship and obtained his Masters and Ph. D. degree in Applied Physics 
in 1972.  From 1972 to 1985, Dr. Fan did research at Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology (MIT) Lincoln Laboratory on a variety of semiconductor materials and devices 
areas.  He was in charge of the Electronic Materials Group at Lincoln Laboratory
when he left MIT in 1985 to start Kopin Corporation.  Kopin Corporation is the
leading provider of HBT transistor wafers and small-format active-matrix liquid crystal 
displays for wireless communication and other portable consumer appliances.
