Canada and Mexico by imposing tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum.

over 27, It may also hurt Universal Display Corp. a leading developer of OLED technology Display makers in Asia fell after Bloomberg News reported the plans Japan Display dropped as much as 44 percent Sharp tumbled as much as 33 percent and Samsung slid 14 percent Shares in Apple were down 13 percent during early trading at 5:21 am in New York Controlling MicroLED technology would help Apple stand out in a maturing smartphone market and outgun rivals like Samsung that have been able to tout superior screens Ray Soneira who runs screen tester DisplayMate Technologies says bringing the design in-house is a "golden opportunity" for Apple "Everyone can buy an OLED or LCD screen" he says "But Apple could own MicroLED" None of this will be easy Mass producing the new screens will require new manufacturing equipment By the time the technology is ready something else might have supplanted it Apple could run into insurmountable hurdles and abandon the project or push it back Its also an expensive endeavor Ultimately Apple will likely outsource production of its new screen technology to minimize the risk of hurting its bottom line with manufacturing snafus The California facility is too small for mass-production but the company wants to keep the proprietary technology away from its partners as long as possible one of the people says "We put a lot of money into the facility" this person says "Its big enough to get through the engineering builds [and] lets us keep everything in-house during the development stages" An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment Right now smartphones and other gadgets essentially use off-the-shelf display technology The Apple Watch screen is made by LG Display Ditto for Googles larger Pixel phone The iPhone X Apples first OLED phone uses Samsung technology Phone manufacturers tweak screens to their specifications and Apple has for years calibrated iPhone screens for color accuracy But this marks the first time Apple is designing screens end-to-end itself The secret initiative code-named T159 is overseen by executive Lynn Youngs an Apple veteran who helped develop touch screens for the original iPhone and iPad and now oversees iPhone and Apple Watch screen technology The 62000-square-foot manufacturing facility the first of its kind for Apple is located on an otherwise unremarkable street in Santa Clara California a 15-minute drive from the Apple Park campus in Cupertino and near a few other unmarked Apple offices There about 300 engineers are designing and producing MicroLED screens for use in future products The facility also has a special area for the intricate process of "growing" LEDs Another facility nearby houses technology that handles so-called LED transfers: the process of placing individual pixels into a MicroLED screen Apple inherited the intellectual property for that process when it purchased startup LuxVue in 2014 About a year after that acquisition Apple opened a display research lab (described internally as a "Technology Center") in Taiwan In a test to see if the company could pull off in-house display manufacturing engineers in Taiwan first built a small number of LCD screens using Apple technology They were assembled at the Santa Clara factory and retrofitted into iPhone 7 prototypes Apple executives tested them then gave the display team the go-ahead to move forward with the development of Apple-designed MicroLED screens The complexity of building a screen manufacturing facility meant it took Apple several months to get the California plant operational Only in recent months have Apple engineers grown confident in their ability to eventually replace screens from Samsung and other suppliers In late 2017 for the first time engineers managed to manufacture fully functional MicroLED screens for future Apple Watches; the company aims to make the new technology available first in its wearable computers While still at least a couple of years away from reaching consumers — assuming the company decides to proceed — producing a functional MicroLED Apple Watch prototype is a significant milestone for a company that in the past designed hardware to be produced by others The latest MicroLED Apple Watch prototypes arent fully functioning wearables; instead the screen portion is connected to an external computer board The screens are notably brighter than the current OLED Watch displays and engineers have a finer level of control over individual colors according to a person who has seen them Executives recently approved continued development for the next two years with the aim of shipping MicroLED screens in products Its unlikely that the technology will reach an iPhone for at least three to five years the people say While the smartphone is Apples cash cow there is precedent for new screen technologies showing up in the Apple Watch first When it was introduced in 2014 the Apple Watch had an OLED screen The technology finally migrated to the iPhone X last year Creating MicroLED screens is extraordinarily complex Depending on screen size they can contain millions of individual pixels Each has three sub-pixels: red green and blue LEDs Each of these tiny LEDs must be individually created and calibrated Each piece comes from what is known as a "donor wafer" and then are mass-transferred to the MicroLED screen Early in the process Apple bought these wafers from third-party manufacturers like Epistar Corp and Osram Licht AG but has since begun "growing" its own LEDs to make in-house donor wafers The growing process is done inside a clean room at the Santa Clara facility Engineers at the facility are also assembling prototype MicroLED screens right down to attaching the screen to the glass The backplanes an underlying component that electronically powers the displays are developed at the Taiwan facility Apple is also designing its own thin-film transistors and screen drivers key components in display assemblies Currently the Santa Clara facility is capable of manufacturing a handful of fully operational Apple Watch-sized (under 2 inches diagonally) MicroLED screens at a time Until MicroLED is ready for the world to see Apple will still — at least publicly — be all-in on OLED The company plans to release a second OLED iPhone in the fall a giant 65-inch model and is working to expand OLED production from Samsung to also include LG Contact us at [email protected] a glimpse of the television ads campaign speeches and newspaper headlines it might be hard to guess that climate change is on the ballot in the fast-approaching midterm elections But climate activists and policy experts across the political spectrum say that win or lose a ballot initiative in Washington state that would create a first-in-the-nation carbon tax has the potential to shake up the national debate about how to address climate change If approved the initiative would require companies to pay to emit climate-change causing carbon dioxide and would in turn provide the Pacific Northwest state with a revenue stream to fund a slew of government programs from clean energy projects to relocating communities threatened by rising sea levels Perhaps more significantly the measure would jumpstart a national debate about how to put a price on carbon thought by many to be central to efforts to stem global warming “This is new ground for everybody” says John Larsen a director at the Rhodium Group an energy research firm “If Washington gets this in place its going to provide a different picture of whats possible” The policy known as I-1631 would require companies to pay $15 for every metric ton of carbon dioxide they emit beginning in 2020 The fee would provide the state with around $1 billion in annual revenue and the price would increase gradually over time Supporters of the initiative say it would allow the state to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% by 2035 the state’s official target Washington would use 70% of the funds for clean air and energy investments 25% for water and forests and 5% for “healthy communities” Supporters list new solar and wind farms forest restoration and climate education programs among the potential direct beneficiaries of a new program Some of these programs are aspirational but others will need to be completed even if the initiative fails But so far Washington communities have struggled to get funding “Were very appreciative of the money we do get from Congress” says Leonard Forsman president of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians an umbrella group that represents more than 30 tribes in Washington “But we have a lot of competition and we need more” To be sure passage remains far from certain Polling suggests that the race is a toss up and while prominent local companies like Microsoft and Expedia have announced their support for the measure several oil and gas industry players have spent tens of millions of dollars to defeat it A loss would require Washington state to rethink how it meets its climate change goals Voters in the state rejected a carbon tax in 2016 in part because progressive groups opposed it for being too conservative And today many opponents of the measure insist that they want to fight climate change but they argue that the measure is poorly constructed a common argument against popular but complex ballot initiatives that has proved successful in the past Regardless of the outcome the effort is likely to help shape the emerging national discussion surrounding pricing carbon A loss would underscore questions about the viability of a progressive carbon tax that funds clean energy jobs and climate adaptation programs and perhaps lead some activists to focus on a different structure (A more moderate approach to a carbon tax is “revenue neutral” meaning it cuts taxes elsewhere or gives the money back to taxpayers in some other form) On the other hand a win would give momentum to such measures particularly in other blue states while giving supporters of a more moderate approach incentive to act more urgently At the moment a federal carbon tax may seem like a distant mirage The topic rarely captures attention on the nation’s airwaves President Donald Trump has repeatedly denied the science of climate change including earlier this month in response to a landmark UN report on the topic And most Democrats have not prioritized the issue Read More: President Trump Won’t Say If He Still Thinks Climate Change Is a Hoax Here’s Why But a slew of small developments beyond the vote in Washington state hint at the emerging debate A group of Republican elder statesmen and prominent economists started an initiative called the Climate Leadership Council and floated what they call a carbon fee and dividend that would charge polluters and give the money back to Americans as a middle-class tax cut Congressman Carlos Curbelo a Republican from South Florida facing a tough re-election campaign introduced carbon tax legislation this year that would fund an infrastructure program Perhaps the biggest indicator of a potential change on hand comes from an unlikely place: the energy industry For decades fossil fuel companies have funded efforts to distort climate science and slow policy action Their tenor has changed in recent years as these companies increasingly recognize that measures to address climate change are inevitable in the long term The sector would rather shape the rules in a fashion that gives them a lane for survival rather than face stringent regulation the next time a Democrat takes office For many that means advocating a price on carbon now Several energy companies have supported the Climate Leadership Council This year ExxonMobil announced a $1 million lobbying push to promote a federal carbon tax The proposal the company supports includes a provision that would protect oil and gas companies from liability over the damages caused by climate change the subject of mounting lawsuits including one filed Oct 24 by New York state And while several oil and gas companies have funded an opposition campaign to the Washington state initiative others have declined to take sides publicly Many in the industry say that a carbon tax would provide the certainty needed for business to make big investments “We need to be focused on what is the message that we can provide with a much larger voice by 2020 and try to make those changes” said Chris Crane the CEO of Exelon a leading power company that supports a carbon tax at an event in Washington DC,
