2014 Display Week Short Course 2 - Fundamentals of OLED Displays - 4070
The commercial production of OLED TV and flexible OLED devices has just begun in 2013 with great excitement. However, the high price and limited availability of both OLED TVs and flexible OLED devices has disappointed many consumers and a pessimistic view on the future of OLED technology has recently been arisen. Professor Chung will review the technical challenges of large-sized OLED TV and flexible OLED devices and will discuss the future opportunities of OLED technology. Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology has made strong advances for display and lighting applications over the past few years. Professor Kwon will address the basic structure of OLEDs, their operational principles, fluorescent and phosphorescent materials, fabrication methods, evaluation technologies, top-emission technologies, tandem technologies, etc. In addition, the current technical status of OLED materials and devices will be discussed.
