Researchers develop novel deep blue OLED emitters based on a 5Cz-BO molecule

Researchers from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), in collaboration with scientists from the University of Cambridge and Beijing Information Science and Technology University developed a novel blue OLED emitter design, based on 5Cz-BO molecules, that offers highly efficient emission with a narrow emission spectrum.

The new OLED emitters incorporate multiple carbazole donor groups into the multiple resonance (MR) type electron acceptor units. This design offers narrow-band short-range charge transfer excited states and it also reduced the energy level difference between the molecule’s singlet and triplet states.

First impressions from SID Displayweek 2024

The display industry's premier event, Displayweek, is over. We will now collect our notes, thoughts, photos and images and will share it all in the coming days. In the meantime, we'd like to detail some initial impressions.

Generally speaking, it seems as if the display industry is going through a phase of relatively little innovation, especially with the mature LCD and OLED industry segments. While it has been a very busy week, and attendance at the event seems high, the number of actual demonstrations and prototypes was not stellar and compared to previous years, the booths were smaller and some companies skipped the event this year or preferred to only show their latest displays in private settings. Some thoughts we have:

LG Display developed a 10,000 nits OLED microdisplay

LG Display developed a new OLED microdisplay (OLEDoS) that achieves a brightness of 10,000 nits. This development is presented at SID DisplayWeek 2024. 

To achieve this high brightness, LG Display's research team used newly-developed high performance OLED materials, and also used a micro lens array (MLA) to expand the light output from the device.
