How Our Ink Works

Electrophoretic Ink, explained.

E Ink is the creator of electronic ink. You may have seen our displays in the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Novatel MiFi and many other devices. We refer to our displays as electronic paper, or ePaper. This ePaper takes the best elements of the printed page, and merges it with electronics to create a new generation of paper - a low power, instantly updateable paper - and just like your favorite book, readable even in the brightest sunlight.
