RETS series

With the increasing demand for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, the structure of LCD displays is becoming more and more diverse. RETS series support you evaluate LCD cell and color filter efficiently. Regardless of its type(whether it is reflection or transmission), you can simply understand the characteristics of samples with the RETS series. e.g. filled cell gap, empty cell gap, optical axis, chromaticity, retardation dispersion, etc.
