DoE Awards Two OLED Contracts to Universal Display
Universal Display Corp., of Ewing, N.J., announced that it has received two $750,000 US Department of Energy (DoE) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contracts. Work under these contracts will focus on demonstrating further advances in the performance of Universal Display’s white OLED technology toward meeting the DoE’s targets for solid state lighting. Using the company’s high-efficiency UniversalPHOLED technology, Universal Display will build a 6” x 6” white OLED lighting panel with targets of > 75 lm/W and an operating lifetime of over 35,000 hrs at 1,000 cd/m2 initial luminance. Under the second contract, the company will demonstrate a high brightness white OLED based on their SOLED technology, where one OLED device is directly stacked on top of another OLED. A white OLED will be designed to demonstrate the same efficiency and lifetime as above at approximately twice the initial luminance.
