More about the Contributor:
We first encountered Jeremy's Tokyo-based YouTubing in early 2014, and as he progressed, we became more and more interested in and appreciative of his quirky, funny, dare we say ‘French’ perspective (yeah, we dare). Jeremy has now returned to France where he continues reporting on Japanese culture. 
In his own words:

SEL have developed a range of flexible OLED displays and high PPI LCD panels which use CAAC oxide semiconductors.

"CAAC stands for C-Axis Aligned Crystal. In this material's structure, the crystals are aligned in the c-axis direction. Because CAAC itself is crystalline instead of amorphous, it has much higher reliability. Until now, with oxide semiconductors, reliability was generally thought to be a problem, but using this material solves that problem."
