Today's technology: Tomorrow's Products
The range of this year's International Display Research Conference (IDRC) - JAPAN DISPLAY 86 - held in Tokyo, September 30 to October 2, was broadened to encompass the expanded frontier of the science and technology of Information Displays, responding to the accelerated demand for a range of display systems including small to large screens and hardcopy devices.

Knife-edge technique improves measurement of CRT beam profiles
An improved technique for measuring spatial profiles of color CRT beams - from which line width, peak luminance, color, and convergence measurements may be derived - uses a knife edge for scanning the beams and a three-detector assembly for developing the profiles of RGB beams simultaneously.
