“Organic Light-Emitting Displays -A New Technology for Low Power, High Performance Displays”


OLEDs are currently under active development as a new display technology for consumer applications, ranging from mobile phones to large screen TVs. These displays have a high resolution, a large color range and have a very rapid response so their viewing characteristics are excellent. Moreover they are very thin (currently ~ 2mm) and have the potential to be made on flexible plastic substrates. DuPont has developed a unique printing technology to manufacture these displays.

This presentation will give an overview of the fabrication process and discuss the underlying science and the technical and economic reasons behind pursuing this technology.
The CALPSACS Executive Committee will conduct a business meeting at the same venue beginning at 11:30 am on June 6. All members are welcome to attend the business meeting.
