ALL PAST & FUTURE EVENTS AS WELL AS MASTERCLASSES WITH A SINGLE ANNUAL PASS

OLEDs: Innovations, Manufacturing, Markets

10-11 April 2024
12:35pm - 6pm

Berlin Time

Online Event

Event Description

This is part of the display series at TechBlick and MicroLED Connect

It will focus on innovations in materials, manufacturing, applications, and markets for OLEDs.


OLEDs are already a commercial success for years and yet the the pace of incremental and radical technological innovations and breakthroughs is incredible, furthering device properties [color, stability, resolution, color gamut, brightness, etc], expanding applications, and opening new manufacturing and patterning techniques from photolithography to printing and beyond. 


These are incredible innovations that could not only entrench the success of OLEDs further, addressing their weak spots, but also perhaps take away the selling points of challengers or alternatives like MicroLEDS, QD-LCDs, etc. 


It is incredible how dynamic this innovation level in this field remains after decades of development and manufacturing 

This is curated by TechBlick and OLED-Info.com

Choong Hoon Yi

CEO

The OLED industry is slowly moving from smartphones and TVs to IT and automotive. The global OLED production capacity for smartphones is 1 billion units, and the Chinese smartphone market is rapidly increasing the use of OLEDs, so LCD lines below 6G will gradually lose their value. The ignition of the OLED market for IT is driving investment in 8.6G equipment. The investment in OLED lines for IT by Korean and Chinese companies is expected to start with tablet PCs and expand to laptops and monitors. Increased investment in OLED for IT will also depress the value of 7G LCD lines. Expectations for micro-OLED market growth are being fueled by Apple Vision Pro. Korean display companies are also investing in mass production equipment in anticipation of MR device market growth. The Korean display industry, which has the best OLED manufacturing technology, will dominate the micro-OLED market.

Franco Egidi

Software Developer

The accurate modeling of complex multi-scale molecular structures poses a significant challenge in computational chemistry, particularly in addressing the intricate properties of OLED materials. While considerable efforts have been devoted to developing precise methods for simulating either isolated molecules using ab-initio quantum chemistry techniques or larger structures using classical mechanics, the demand for accurately describing highly complex systems like OLED materials necessitates an integrated approach, as OLED properties are governed by intricate quantum mechanical interactions arising from numerous intermolecular forces that depend on the material’s composition.

To address this challenge, SCM has developed a comprehensive workflow that enables the seamless simulation of OLED materials, leveraging cutting-edge methods encompassing both classical and quantum approaches, allowing researchers to expedite the development of new OLED stacks by screening and selecting the most promising combination of materials. This streamlined approach not only accelerates the discovery process but also enhances the efficiency of materials design and the optimization of next-generation OLED technologies.

The workflow comprises two primary steps: molecular component deposition and property simulation. In this presentation, we elucidate our workflow, present key findings, and unveil the latest advancements that enhance the accuracy of our results. Our approach not only facilitates the exploration of OLED material properties but also marks a significant step towards understanding and optimizing these crucial technologies. Additionally, the results from our atomistic calculations can be used in mesoscale kinetic Monte Carlo (kMC) simulations for device-level modeling, enabling the prediction of external quantum efficiency, J-V curves, and other important device characteristics for OLED stacks.

Paul Blom

Director

The efficiency and stability of single-layer polymer light-emitting diodes is compromised by unbalanced charge transport, the absence of triplet-exciton harvesting and low photoluminescence quantum efficiencies. We demonstrate that using thermally delayed activated fluorescence emitters in combination with trap-free transport internal quantum efficiencies of unity are obtained, resulting in high external quantum efficiencies of 28%. Our results show that OLEDs with a simplified single-layer structure can rival the efficiencies of complex multilayer stacks.
