Learn all about the next display generation OLED
Organic-Displays are the latest and most promising buzzwords in display technology.
To give you an idea of their potential, imagine a cardboard-thin TV screen.
Now imagine that you can roll up your TV, put it away or carry it wherever you go. Automatically, you start appreciating why millions, if not billions, of dollars are being poured into PLED research every year.
any electronic appliances are at the threshold of a revolution that began with the discovery of polymeric conductors in the 1970s. Polymeric materials, which have historically been classified exclusively as electrical insulators, are now finding varied applications as both conductors and semiconductors. Expensive ceramic semiconductors that are brittle and difficult to pattern have historically been the driving force of the digital age for the last fifty years. But now a combination of properties exist today in polymers that are making many previously impossible appliances a reality.
Within a very short time organic conductors have been developed with the conductivity of metals such as copper, while organic electronics has evolved photoelectric cells, diodes, light emitting diodes, lasers and transistors. The result is that a class of plastic materials referred to as conjugated polymers are fast displacing traditional materials such as natural polymers (e.g. wood), metals, ceramics and glass in many applications owing to the combination of their physical/mechanical properties (light weight combined with physical strength) and ease of processibility (the ability to mould the shape of plastic materials or extrude into sheet and rod through a die).
