OLED Lighting: From Fundamentals to Practical Applications
Organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) are expected to be the next generation flat panel displays and have been commercialized for mobile phones, small-size TVs and car audios. In addition, the performance of white-light-emitting OLEDs have been steadily improved and, today, they are considered to be the light source of the next generation. In this talk, the recent development of high performance white OLEDs will be discussed.
Distinguished Research Professor
Research Center for Organic Electronics
Junji Kido was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1959. He has received his B.S. degree in applied chemistry from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan, in 1984 and the M.S. and Ph. D. degrees in polymer chemistry from Polytechnic University, New York, in 1987 and 1989, respectively.
In 1989, he joined the department of polymer chemistry in Yamagata University in Japan as an assistant professor and promoted to an associate professor in 1995, and to a full professor in 2002. From 1990 to 1992, he was associated as a research scientist in Brookhaven National Laboratory.
His current research activities are focused on organic electroluminescence materials and devices. His work has been recognized by awards from the Society of Polymer Science, Japan, and Society for Information Display, U.S.A. (2002 and 2008). He has been serving as a project leader for the Japanese national project on "Advanced Organic Semiconductor Devices" sponsored by METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) since 2002, and as a General Director for Research Institute for Organic Electronics in Yamagata, Japan, from 2003 to 2010.
Current Status and Future Trend of OLED for lighting Application
Practical White OLED device, which is one of the candidates of the next generation lighting device, has been commercialized particularly from 2012. Various lighting companies and design companies are stepped into the new market and there were many exhibits at the Lighting Fair 2013 and they appealed opening of the new era of the OLED lighting. In this session, current status and future trend of the OLED device technologies will be presented.
R&D Planning Office / Research Director
Panasonic Corporation Eco Solutions Company
Takuya Komoda joined Panasonic Electric Works Co. Ltd. (PEW: now Panasonic Corporation) in 1978 after graduating from Kyoto University. He has been working on semiconductor process and device design technology. In 1997, he received Ph.D. from the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK. Since then, He has been working on Organic LED, and he is now the Research Director of the R&D Planning Office within Eco Solutions Company, Panasonic Corporation and the project leader of the NEDO project on High Efficiency Organic LED for Lighting application. He is also a visiting professors for Tokyo University of A&T, Osaka University and Yamagata University.
Lighting Design Trends and the Outlook for OLEDs
From the global viewpoint it is clear that recent design trends are in a period of turmoil. The speaker introduces the “Zen” style launched in Paris in the early 2000s, and the major trends that have followed it. Lighting design has evolved along with light source development, and is changing dramatically today. He also discusses the current position and future of OLEDs within world design, as a new light source.
