UDC's Development of Phosphorescent Blue OLEDs

OLED displays are now in commercial production for a range of products from smart phones, IT, TVs, and newly emerging applications such as AR/VR headsets, automotive displays, wearable devices and solid-state lighting. UDC is a pioneer in the development and commercialization of phosphorescent OLED technology and materials for high-performing, 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, proprietary OLED technologies and UniversalPHOLED (phosphorescent OLED) emissive material systems. In this presentation, we outline how we are ensuring that our PHOLED technology roadmap meets the ever more demanding performance requirements of future products in the growing OLED market. In particular, we outline our development to enable the introduction of our all-phosphorescent RGB stack into the commercial market in 2024, as well as our organic vapor jet printing (OVJP) platform for depositing patterned small molecule organic materials to manufacture large area side by side R-G-B OLED TVs.
