Fraunhofer FEP: Electron beam patterning for high-resolution full-colour OLED displays


Products

OLED microdisplays are increasingly establishing themselves in consumer-ready wearables and data glasses. In order to meet the requirements for higher efficiency, higher contrast, and higher resolutions in these applications, Fraunhofer FEP (Dresden, Germany) scientists have developed a new micropatterning approach for OLEDs on silicon substrates. This might eliminate the use of colour filters and shadow masks in the future and allow full-colour displays to be developed by means of a new process. An increase in efficiency and considerably broader colour gamut have already been demonstrated in first experiments. The results will be presented at the Fraunhofer FEP booth and during the poster session at IMID 2018 in Busan, South Korea, on 29-31 August 2018.
