  • Oxide TFT Technology for AM-OLED Display

    Organic light emitting display requires that the thin film transistor (TFT) have high reliability, uniformity and high mobility. I will talk about the pros and cons for the use of conventional amorphous silicon TFT, low temperature poly silicon TFT, and new oxide semiconductor TFT. Regarding to the common low reliability problem of the oxide semiconductor TFT such as the threshold voltage shift against bias/photo stress, I will introduce Sony’s highly reliable TFT technology and Sony's self-align TFT structure which is suitable for high density display and effective to improve the luminance uniformity.

  • Printing Technologies for High-Quality OLED Displays

    OLED displays are increasingly used in various applications thanks to its outstanding performances as a quality display device such as high contrast, wide range of color reproducibility, fast response, etc. In addition, a new OLED manufacturing technology based on printing technology that is supported by progressive improvement of material properties is attracting attention. This manufacturing method integrating the printing technology is highly productive and extremely conformable to the process of manufacturing display panels due to that it can easily size up the panel and improve its resolution. Therefore, this technology is expected to be a key to permeating OLED on a full scale. This presentation overlooks the latest OLED printing technology and discusses its possibility as well as Sony's efforts in this field.

  • Solution Printing to Enable Low Cost Manufacturing of OLEDs

    Solution coating offers the potential for significant cost-savings in AMOLED production through reduced material waste and through enablement of large size glass substrates. The DuPont approach to solution processing is based on small molecule OLED materials because of their superior performance. The cost advantage results from the application via solution methods of as many OLED layers as possible. By tailoring the materials to tolerate solution coating in ambient clean-room conditions, DuPont is able to deliver printed devices with excellent electrical performance. Blanket layers are first deposited sequentially via slot die coating onto an active matrix backplane. The RGB sub-pixels are patterned by printing with a nozzle printer, where the pixels are filled by continuously extruding solution from nozzles moving at high speeds. Intra- and inter-pixel luminance uniformity of solution processed AMOLEDs made by this method match or exceed that of commercial evaporated AMOLEDs and AMLCDs. Data on the excellent uniformity of solution processed devices will be presented.

  • New deep blue fluorescent materials and their applications to high performance OLEDs

    We will report recent development of OLED materials in Idemitstu Kosan. We developed highly efficient deep blue fluorescent materials. One of the materials showed high current efficiency using a new efficiency-enhancement layer (EEL) which can generate singlet excitons from triplet excitons effectively inside of an emitting layer. In addition, we developed new efficient red and green phosphorescent host materials. By optimizing the balance of career mobility, we achieved high efficiency and long lifetime. Furthermore, we applied the emitting materials to top-emission OLEDs designed for full-color display.

  • Lighting our way with White Phosphorescent OLEDs

    Organic lighting emitting diodes have caught the attention of the consumer. OLED smart phones are readily available in the global market. OLED TV prototypes which offer truly spectacular visual experiences are being exhibited at leading tradeshows. While the early focus of OLED development was for display applications, through the use of phosphorescent OLEDs, the technology is now being considered as an energy efficient solid state lighting candidate. Lighting is now at a cross roads. Incandescent lamps are being banned because of their environmental impact, while compact fluorescent lamps have limited visual appeal, as well as safety concerns for residential lighting due to their mercury content. Both inorganic LEDs and OLEDs can provide safe and energy efficient replacements for these older lighting technologies. Here we will focus on the recent rapid progress in PHOLED performance as white light sources and discuss the next challenges.

  • Development of Transparent AMOLEDs with Competitive Backplane Technologies and Touch Functions

    Active-matrix organic light emitting displays (AMOLEDs) have attracted widely attention in recent years due to their various merits for flat-panel displays. Further, their unique properties also render many novel applications and markets possible, such as flexible displays and transparent displays. In this talk, development and prototypes of transparent AMOLEDs will be investigated with two competitive backplane technologies. Firstly, a 2.4 inch touchable transparent AMOLED was realized with oxide-semiconductor based thin-film transistors (Oxide TFTs). High transparency and high resolution were achieved simultaneously, mainly attributed to the wide bandgaps of most materials used in TFTs, OLEDs, and touch sensors. Secondly, a 6 inch transparent AMOLED was also realized with solid-phase crystallized (SPC) poly-silicon TFTs. Not like the excimer laser annealed (ELA) poly-silicon TFTs, AMOLED with SPC poly-silicon TFTs is free of laser related mura, and the pixel design can be kept as simple as possible to gain high aperture ratio and transparency.

  • Current status and future of the flexible OLED display

    The OLED display has established its position in the display device market, particlarly mid to small size devices for mobile application because of exellent picture quality and thinner shape. However, the LCD display for this application is also showing rapid progress in performance. So, it is critical for OLED display to develop its unique function and capability. Since the OLED device is composed mainly of organic materials, flexibility should be the key to compete with LCD. A wide variety of flexible OLED displays have already been demonstrated form early stage of R&D history. But, many issues are still remaining, such as reliability of OLED, suitable flexible substrate, appropriate TFT backplane, cost effective manufacturing process and so on. In this presentation, those issues and challenges to overcome will be reviewd.

    Oxide TFT is a promising candidate for driving flexible OLEDs owing to its high mobility, low-temperature process, and excellent short-range uniformity of electrical properties. High Reliability of TFT on plastic substrate is required for practical use of flexible displays. We have developed highly reliable oxide TFTs on plastic substrate with low temperature (200℃) process, and a flexible OLED display with integrated gate driver circuits. We would like to talk about our developed flexible OLED display driven by oxide TFTs, and input function as new value of flexible display beyond thin & light.
