July 11, 2017: Universal Display, the provider of OLED technologies and materials, is accelerating its organic vapour jet printing (OVJP) R&D efforts.
OVJP also allows for orientation-independent printing, face-up or face-down or even on vertically-standing substrate. A large display substrate moves over a pack of stationary print heads, each alimented with vapour-transported emitter materials and enables to print all three colours in a single pass. The OLED materials are evaporated into a carrier gas that delivers them to a jet engine for direct printing of patterned OLED layers.
The Hexagon Array and Color Board demonstrate a selection of UDC’s high-performing, energy-efficient commercial and developmental red, yellow, green, light blue and blue UniversalPHOLED phosphorescent material systems.
“2017 celebrates the exciting past, present and future of OLEDs. With SID commemorating 30 years since the ‘1st OLED Paper’ was released and our 20-year anniversary of the discovery and development of novel phosphorescent OLED technology, this year also marks the broadening proliferation of bright, colorful, and thin OLED applications and the growing positive trajectory in the OLED display and lighting markets,” said Steven V.
Abramson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Display. “Since inception, we have never wavered from our founding ethos of ‘vision, innovation and reality’ and those principles have paved our pioneering journey from an idea to an R&D start-up to a key enabler in the OLED ecosystem.”
