System, device, and method for receiving or sensing touch or light input to an emissive display such as to a OLED display using the same or different sensors as are used to sense and maintain a pixel luminance. Penlight and touch screen data input system and method for display. A sidelight illuminated display and touch panel input device. Method and device for reading display pixel emission and ambient luminance levels. Emissive display having sensing for luminance stabilization and user light or touch screen input. Method and device for emissive display using shielded or partially shielded sensors. Emissive pixel display device characterized in that photon sensors are disposed within pixels and operated to sense photons emitted by emitter within pixel and ambient photons emitted by sources outside pixel, sensed internally emitted photons being for luminance feedback control and sensed ambient photons being used to detect external light source or sources.
