Olight® Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED)
What They Say
“DuPont™ Olight® displays use organic materials to produce light. When thin layers of this material are sandwiched between appropriate anode and cathode layers, a relatively modest voltage (typically 2 - 10 Volts) applied across the material will cause it to emit light in a process called electro luminescence. This combination of anode materials, cathode materials and light emitting organic materials forms the Olight® mechanism. Olight® is thin film emissive technology that can be applied in solution or vapor form.
In full-color Olight® screens, each color “dot” or pixel consists of three individual, single color sub pixels: one each for emitting red, green, and blue. An Olight® display is a device made up of multiple junctions, arranged in a matrix that allows each junction to be addressed individually.
DuPont™ Olight® displays have tremendous long-range potential to optimize the performance of flat-panel displays. Some progress needs to be made before a full-color Olight® display can be produced in quantity, with maximum cost efficiencies. Yet, potential advantages in lightweight, low power consumption, and low cost provide compelling economic incentives to the market.”
What Others Say
“Made of nanostructured polymer films, OLED screens emit their own light and are lighter, smaller and more energy efficient than conventional liquid crystal displays. To marketing and branding experts, the fact that three Fortune 500 heavyweights are vying to make OLED technology a consumer proposition suggests that the market for next generation nano-powered displays will be a real contest. According to research firm DisplaySearch, the market for OLED displays will grow from $112 million worldwide in 2002 to $3.1 billion by 2007.”
