Philips forms startup to<br>sell electrowetting display

Philips Research Labs and New Venture Partners have formed a startup company, Liquavista BV, to commercialize electrowetting display technology invented by company founders Rob Hayes and Johan Feenstra, in 2002.
The backers have recruited Mark Gostick as chief executive officer.

The electrowetting display is based on the fact that a water droplet in contact with a water-repellent surface will begin to spread out in the presence of an electric field. Hayes and Feenstra showed a 3 x 5 array of pixels built on a glass substrate in October 2003. The reflectivity was greater than 40 percent, contrast ratios were greater than 15 and response times below 10 milliseconds. The system could be implemented on flexible substrates to create video paper, the researchers asserted at the time.
