Universal Display Corp (UDC) has announced that the Company has been added to the NASDAQ® Clean Edge® Green Energy Index. The company’s addition to the Index became effective on Monday, March 22, 2010.
Novaled AG has been announced as the winner of the CleanEquity Award 2010. H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco presented the award to the winner at the international conference for Cleantech Specialists ‚CleanEquity Monaco 2010’ on March, 5th.
The Linde Group and Shanghai University have recently announced they intend to form a research partnership to explore and develop new advanced packaging solutions for flexible displays to enhance product quality and cost efficiencies.
The joint research and development (R&D) project will take place at the university's research centre, the Key Laboratory for Advanced Display and System Applications, to explore new gas application techniques for the manufacturing and packaging of flexible display technology.
Osram has commissioned Professor Andreas Schulz together with his team at lighting planners 'LichtKunstLicht' to build and install an exhibit that demonstrates the versatility of OLED lighting under the theme – "Light as experience, light as work of art".
The team at LichtKunstLicht have used hundreds of Orbeos OLED panels that float virtually unfettered in the room and form walls as well as parts of the ceiling and floor. According to the announcement visitors to the Osram stand will be able to enter, walk through the installation and see for themselves that future lighting will no longer have to be produced from just one central point by individual luminaires. Unlike conventional luminaries OLED lighting provides designers with unprecedented creative freedom.
Best ICT4EE Project Award competition was open to all publicly-funded research and technological development projects that involve one or more participants having research and/or business interests in each of the ICT and energy domains. Out of 39 candidates, web voting and jury decided that the first place prize be shared equally by the OLED100.eu and Beywatch projects. The winners both received €10,000.
According to a news report by OLEDNet.com Modistech is expected to accelerate the commercialisation of flexible OLED lighting in 2010. The company is plans to product 150 mm x 150 mm panels on flexible substrates.
According to news reports Sony Corp said this week that the company would halt sales of XEL-1 flagship OLED TV product. Production has already been stopped in Japan, and sales will continue until inventory has gone. Sony has said that it will, for the foreseeable future, continue production in America and Europe.
Although the XEl-1 is an exciting product the small size and high price has certainly contributed to lower than expected market adoption compared to LCD and plasma TVs.
Researchers at Linköping University, Umeå University, Rutgers University, have recently published results of their work on using a graphene cathode to fabricate an all solution processible light emitting device. The researchers used chemically derived graphene for the transparent cathode to produce an all organic sandwich structure device, similar to an OLED, called a light-emitting electrochemical cell (LEC). Using a screen-printable conducting polymer (PEDOT-PSS) as a partially transparent anode and a micrometer-thick active layer solution-deposited from a blend of a light-emitting polymer (super yellow) and a polymer electrolyte, the research team demonstrated a light-emitting device based solely on solution-processable organic-based materials.
Mitsubishi Chemical Corp and Pioneer Corp have jointly announced that the companies have entered into a strategic alliance to develop OLED lighting technologies. In addition Mitsubishi Chemical will acquire a stake in Pioneer to strengthen company relations.
Mitsubishi Chemical has decided to enter the OLED lighting business, and plans to begin mass production and launch of illumination appliances during 2011. The company has established an initial sales target for the OLED lighting business of 30 billion Japanese yen by 2015, and 100 billion Japanese yen by 2020.
