UniversalP2OLED® printable, phosphorescent OLED materials and technology are under development to combine the high efficiency of the company's UniversalPHOLED® technology with potential low-cost solution processing techniques, like ink-jet printing and slot coating. The company has recently made significant advances in its UniversalP2OLED technology and materials.
As shown in the following table, these advances have included increased luminous efficiency and voltage reductions. In addition, recent technology development has rapidly improved operating lifetimes to put commercial viability in sight.
These recent advances - the result of continued improvements in materials, device design and fabrication techniques - drive P2OLED performance closer to the efficiency levels currently obtained using vacuum-based manufacturing today.
Through the development of optimized ink formulations, the company has also demonstrated ink-jet printed P2OLED devices with comparable performance to devices made by spin-coating. While spin coating is a technique generally only used for research purposes, ink-jet printing is one of the leading solution-processing candidates for use in large-area manufacturing settings.
