Tokyo's Nikkei national media conglomerate covering business, finance and industry news is reporting this morning that Apple is amongst a number of tech companies that are interested in a new kind of optical film that could create images with better picture quality than OLED film. Due to the film's low cost, it could replace other, more expensive films that have been used to create LCDs.
Toyobo Co., a synthetic fiber manufacturer, will begin producing the film in April, at a scale of 10,000 tons per year. The firm installed a production line at its plant in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, last year, and has shipped samples to LCD manufacturers.
