An e-book reader uses an electronic paper display (EPD) technology to display text and images. EPD is based on reflective technology, like traditional ink-on-paper, which provides a natural reading experience without causing eye strain. Here's how it works:
Overall, e-book readers utilize EPD technology to mimic traditional ink-on-paper reading experience, offering a comfortable and eye-friendly way to display text and images.
An e-book reader uses an electronic ink (e-ink) display technology to display text and images. The e-ink display consists of tiny microcapsules filled with positively charged white particles and negatively charged black particles suspended in a clear fluid. When an electric field is applied, the particles move up or down creating the desired text or image on the screen.
When displaying text, the e-book reader activates the required microcapsules, which move the black particles to the top making them visible against the white background. This process is similar to traditional ink on paper, providing a more paper-like reading experience.
For images, the e-book reader adjusts the electric field to selectively position the black and white particles, creating various shades of gray. By using different combinations of black and white particles, it can display images and illustrations.
The navigation and control buttons on the e-book reader allow users to change pages, zoom in or out, adjust brightness, and perform other functions needed for an enhanced reading experience.
