- Vitex, Novaled Collaborate on OLEDs
San Jose, Calif.-based Vitex, a maker of thin-film encapsulation, and Novaled of Dresden, Germany, will collaborate to produce very thin, highly efficient, long lasting OLED products. Vitex Barix thin-film technology will be combined with Novaled PIN OLEDs for marketing very thin and efficient OLED devices. OLED, a major technology for the new generation of displays, covers applications from the mobile phones to televisions by offering better design and energy use.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
- thin film
- A thin layer of a substance deposited on an insulating base in a vacuum by a microelectronic process. Thin films are most commonly used for antireflection, achromatic beamsplitters, color filters, narrow passband filters, semitransparent mirrors, heat control filters, high reflectivity mirrors, polarizers and reflection filters.
