This report discusses the technology trends, products, applications, and suppliers of materials and equipment. A market forecast for display equipment and materials analyzed and forecast.

At its core, OLED picture quality is superior to LCD on brightness, uniformity, blackness, viewing angle, and contrast ratio and a key feature for mobile devices, as it reduces energy consumption, thus extending battery life. The higher 1000 pixel per inch (PPI) of OLED is crucial for virtual/augmented reality applications. Meanwhile, the refresh rate is multiples higher vs. LCD and critical for real-time gaming. That said, LCD is significantly better on price given the sheer production scale and sizeable competition in that market (vs.

New global temperature data will inform study of climate impacts on health, agriculture — ScienceDaily

A seemingly small one-to-two degree change in the global climate can dramatically alter weather-related hazards. Given that such a small change can result in such big impacts, it is important to have the most accurate information possible when studying the impact of climate change. This can be especially challenging in data sparse areas like Africa, where some of the most dangerous hazards are expected to emerge.

A new data set published in the journal Scientific Data provides high-resolution, daily temperatures from around the globe that could prove valuable in studying human health impacts from heat waves, risks to agriculture, droughts, potential crop failures, and food insecurity.

Data scientists Andrew Verdin and Kathryn Grace of the Minnesota Population Center at the University of Minnesota worked with colleagues at the Climate Hazards Center at the University of California Santa Barbara to produce and validate the data set.

“It’s important to have this

American Pikas show resiliency in the face of global warming — ScienceDaily

The American pika is a charismatic, diminutive relative of rabbits that some researchers say is at high risk of extinction due to climate change. Pikas typically live in cool habitats, often in mountains, under rocks and boulders. Because pikas are sensitive to high temperatures, some researchers predict that, as the Earth’s temperature rises, pikas will have to move ever higher elevations until they eventually run out of habitat and die out. Some scientists have claimed this cute little herbivore is the proverbial canary in the coal mine for climate change.

A new extensive review by Arizona State University emeritus professor Andrew Smith, published in the October issue of the Journal of Mammalogy, finds that the American pika is far more resilient in the face of warm temperatures than previously believed. While emphasizing that climate change is a serious threat to the survival of many species on Earth, Smith believes

Risen Capitalises on Future Market Trend with a 1.5 GW Global Order

NINGBO, China, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Risen Energy Co., Ltd, a leading, Tier 1 manufacturer of high-performance solar photovoltaic products, today disclosed the signing of a contract for 1.5 GW of its Bifacial Mono PERC Solar PV modules, in cooperation with a well-known, independent, global power producer.

The emergence of bifacial modules is rapidly gaining pace due to the growing requirement to generate more energy for less money, with the bifacial features dovetailing fully into this paradigm. While initial adoption after introduction was relatively slow, discerning solar industry players have now awoken to the positive attributes the bifacial format provides the arsenal of tools that every IPP calls upon to maximise their revenue and profits.

Having established their credibility over recent years with more traditional solar PV formats, Risen has quietly developed an equally credible presence in the bifacial camp, which

IMF sees less severe global contraction but trouble in emerging markets

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Forecasts for the global economy are “somewhat less dire” as rich nations and China have rebounded quicker than expected from coronavirus lockdowns, but the outlook for many emerging markets has worsened, the International Monetary Fund said on Tuesday.

The IMF forecast a 2020 global contraction of 4.4% in its latest World Economic Outlook, an improvement over a 5.2% contraction predicted in June, when pandemic-related business closures reached their peak.

The global economy will return to growth of 5.2% in 2021, the IMF said, but the rebound will be slightly weaker than forecast in June, partly due to the extreme difficulties for many emerging markets and a slowdown in the reopening of economies due to the

Noted Global Consultant Features Tealbook At Center of “The Future State of E-Procurement” Ecosystem

“The future of digital supply chains requires a data foundation that unlocks unlimited value creation,” says Dr. Elouise Epstein of Kearney. “Tealbook is a leading example of that data foundation.”

The benefit of a trusted supplier data foundation is to provide procurement teams with the ability to innovate with suppliers, drive advanced costs savings, create opportunities for corporate social responsibility (CSR), and manage risk. The data foundation is the organizing principle of the supplier information. Once it is cleansed, harmonized, and  enriched it becomes easily syndicated to every application in the ecosystem. Data from Tealbook can be incorporated into any technology, whether it is a S2P tool, ERP, S2P/P2P, niche digital solution, Excel, or another analytics tool, ideally tying them together by the same source of data.

“The need to achieve digital procurement success has been a challenge for nearly every enterprise,” says Dr. Epstein. “This new ecosystem view
