Unleashing the potential of novel deep-blue 2-coordinate Au TADF complexes with short radiative lifetimes as emitters in OLEDs

Jonas Schaab

ABSTRACT:

This presentation highlights emitter materials for OLEDs utilizing earth abundant coinage metals. Two-coordinate cMa complexes have emerged as promising emitter materials due to their high luminescent efficiencies and short radiative lifetimes. This talk will highlight advances achieved in the recent years as well as the performance of respective devices. A series of complexes will be used to exemplify the color tunability as well as control of the radiative lifetime to reduce the roll off in efficiency of OLED devices at high brightness. The presentation offers insights for designing new cMa derivatives with faster radiative rates, providing flexibility in tailoring excited state lifetimes.

Biography:

Jonas Schaab is a graduate student at the University of Southern California with seven years of experience in materials and inorganic chemistry research. His specialization revolves around blue OLED emitters, where he has developed novel thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) emitters with ultrashort lifetimes (τ< 300 ns) and high photoluminescence efficiency.

Jonas received his Bachelor’s and Master’s in inorganic and physical chemistry from LMU Munich, laying the foundation of his broad analytical expertise like NMR and spectroscopy. He has three years of experience as a materials engineer, focusing on the fabrication and testing of thin films and OLED devices. His extensive work in advancing the field of OLEDs resulted in several publications in prominent journals, conference presentations, and patents.


Roll-to-Roll Flexographically Printed OLEDs

Whitney GaynorDr. Whitney Gaynor

ABSTRACT:

OLED is widely known as the highest quality display on the market, used in flagship products such as high-end TVs and smartphones. Many of the early promises of OLEDs have been realized and commercialized, including their ultra-thinness and potential for flexibility. However, today's flexible OLEDs are still fabricated in much the same way as rigid OLEDs on glass. And most of the innovation in the field is still aimed at high-end consumer products. At Sinovia, we use roll-to-roll flexographic printing to fabricate bottom-emitting OLEDs suitable for use in segmented, indicator, and passive matrix displays at price points that can compete with incumbent LCDs and LED assemblies. This is enabled by our proprietary materials technology and our in-house process, along with some key supplier partnerships. In this talk, I will cover our core technology, our development status, applications of our displays, and our current work as we move toward mass production.

Biography:

Whitney is the CEO and co-founder of Sinovia Technologies, a Stanford University spinout working to realize roll-to-roll printed OLEDs based on flexographic printing. Over time, her role at the company has evolved from pure R&D in roll-to-roll processing and OLED stack development to include managing a small team, supply chain sourcing and partnerships, working with customers to define technology requirements, and general business development. She has served as PI for multiple U.S. government grant programs from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy, and now occasionally serves as a reviewer for those programs. She took Sinovia through Y Combinator in 2017 and has raised three rounds of venture funding to date.

Whitney's doctoral thesis work served as the basis for founding Sinovia and her first author peer-reviewed papers in the field of organic electronics have been cited over 1200 times. She holds an S.B. in materials science and engineering from MIT and a masters and PhD in materials science and engineering from Stanford University.

Abstract

Quantum Dot enabled displays have become a mainstay of modern display technology, especially in the TV segment. QD-films are the most commonly utilized form factor used to convert blue LED light to red and green for wide color gamut and high brightness. However more recently QD-OLED has become a top-tier display using QDs to convert from blue OLED at the sub-pixel level, providing an amazing viewing experience. We take a peek inside TVs that contain QDs, from the basic QD-film approach, through the newest QD-OLED approach. Using in-depth optical and spectral analysis and complete video teardowns we will start with the entire display and drill all the way down to the details of the QDs themselves, learning a bit along the way about how these materials are utilized now and into the future.

Abstract

Mass adoption of AR,VR and MR headsets as gateways to Metaverse use cases and smart glasses for contextual displays is contingent on solving all three immersive displays comfort pillars: wearable, visual and social. To do so, novel display architectures need to be developed and implemented, a step beyond the traditional direct view and/or display engine + optical combiner concepts which ruled the past decades of product developments in this field. Novel multifunctional display building blocks integrating both image generation, image combining as well as sensing in a monolithic transparent hybrid optoelectronic component are key to designing effective all-day use forgettable smart glasses. Such hybrid functional integration on a transparent substrate require major developments in display technologies, micro-optical engineering as well as in novel computational display algorithms based on multi-path planar architectures“.

He’ll share DSCC’s latest long-term forecast by technology, market, fab schedules, and capacity. Young also will focus on how display technology performance and market share are likely to evolve as OLED, miniLED, LCD, and microLED competition heats up.

 

Next Generation Cinema LED Display Screens

Abstract: Since the dawn of cinema, displays have consisted of a large reflective screen illuminated by an imaging projector.  While the projector technology has seen significant advancements, the basics have remained unchanged: a projector and screen.  That has now changed with the introduction of direct-view displays derived from an array of LED pixels, opening up new opportunities for image quality and configuration.  In this talk, you’ll learn about the enabling technologies for direct-view cinema, their current deployment status, and the impact on filmmaking and studio releases.

Peter Lude, CTO Mission Rock Digital, broadcast and media consultant, and SMPTE fellow (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers). Pete has been working on high-end LED emissive displays for digital cinema (theaters) – with unique requirements dictated by the Hollywood Studios DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) team. There are currently around a dozen approved high-quality LED cinema installations throughout the US, and many more worldwide.   By coincidence, there are two theaters with LED screens now, right in Buena Park. 

 

RGB: The Next 25 Years 

Charles PoyntonAbstract: The sRGB standard was established in 1998, and remains in very wide use today. It’s had a good run! sRGB has been hugely important – and valuable – to the display industry. However, it won’t last another 25 years. We need to consider what comes next. We discuss the ambiguity concerning whether or not sRGB’s EOTF has a linear slope near black; the crude appearance match commonly achieved by altering display gamma to account for display and viewing conditions (eg, between 2.4 and 2.2); whether or not display mapping algorithms are necessary at the display to compensate for colour gamut mismatch; and whether a new wide colour gamut interchange standard is needed. 

Charles Poynton is an independent researcher specializing in the physics, mathematics, engineering, and programming of digital colour imaging systems, including digital video, HD/UHD/4K/8K (HDTV/UHDTV), VFX/CGI, DI, and digital cinema (D-cinema) systems, including wide colour gamut (WCG) and high dynamic range (HDR) systems. He is engaged in technology forecasting, systems modelling, algorithm development, colour characterization and calibration, image quality assessment, and expert witness work. He contributed to the development of colorspaces such as BT.709/BT.1886, DCI P3 RGB, Adobe RGB 1998, ACES AP0/AP1, and BT.2020. He was responsible for the introduction of 1080 image rows (and “square pixels”) for HD. He is the author of “Digital Video and HD Algorithms and Interfaces,” now in its second edition. He earned his PhD in 2018 from Simon Fraser University.
