UDC's Groundbreaking Advances for the OLED Industry

OLED displays are now in commercial production for a range of consumer products including mobile phones, smartwatches, tablets, TVs, and recently emerging in applications such as AR/VR headsets, laptops, automotive displays and solid-state lighting. UDC is a pioneer in the development and supply of phosphorescent OLED technology and materials for energy-efficient display and lighting applications.

UDC’s mission is to be a key enabler in the OLED ecosystem and support our customers and the OLED industry’s growth with our broad and deep experience and know-how and expanding materials and technology portfolio. Since inception, we have sought innovative solutions to complex challenges that the OLED industry faces. In addition to our proprietary OLED technologies and UniversalPHOLED (phosphorescent OLED) energy- efficient emissive material systems, we have developed a novel, mask-less, dry printing technology called OVJP (organic vapor jet printing). In this presentation, we present significant updates and progress with our organic vapor jet printing platform for depositing patterned small molecule organic materials to manufacture large area side-by-side RGB OLED TVs, providing a cost-effective, high-throughput manufacturing path and high device performance.

Our Phosphorescent OLEDs are continuously improving in performance and in this talk we would also like to present our display efficiency roadmap to ultra-low power consumption that incorporates an all-phosphorescent RGB stack being introduced into the commercial market in 2024. We believe that the significant increases in efficiency and performance will enable new product applications for OLED technology, thereby growing the OLED market.
