  • Universal Display Awarded OLED Contracts
Aug 2002
EWING, N.J., August 13 -- Universal Display Corp., a developer of flat panel display technology, has been awarded two $100,000 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to demonstrate the feasibility of using its proprietary, high-efficiency phosphorescent OLED (PHOLED) and flexible OLED (FOLED) technologies for general lighting applications.

Universal Display and its research partners, Princeton University and the University of Southern California, have identified several new approaches to generate highly efficient white light that may also open up significant new opportunities in the general lighting industry, the company said.

In the DOE SBIR program, entitled "White Illumination Sources Using Striped Phosphorescent OLEDs," Universal Display and its partners will focus on demonstrating a broadband white light source built on a flexible plastic substrate that consists of a series of highly efficient red, green and blue PHOLED stripes that combine to emit white light.

In the second DOE SBIR program, "Monomer-Excimer Phosphorescent OLEDs for General Lighting," the team will focus on demonstrating an innovative PHOLED structure that utilizes the combined monomer and excimer excited states to achieve high-quality, efficient white emission.
