- AMOLED Displays for Video
The Flexible Display Center (FDC)
at Arizona State University in Tempe, and Universal Display Corp. of Ewing, N.J.,
have fabricated full-color, flexible active-matrix organic light-emitting diode
(AMOLED) display prototypes. With funding from the US Army, the FDC is developing
the displays for use in thin, lightweight, bendable and unbreakable devices that
display full-color, full-motion video. The prototypes were fabricated using the center’s bond/de-bond manufacturing process and Universal Display’s full-color, top-emission phosphorescent OLED technology and materials. The displays use Universal Display’s patented single-layer encapsulation technology to seal the OLEDs, made on DuPont Teijin Films Teonex polyester film. The lower power consumption of Universal Display’s phosphorescent OLEDs compared to that of other full-color video display technologies is an advantage for ultralight portable devices. The prototypes also incorporate materials and technologies developed by other members of the FDC’s industrial consortium.
