The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology (FEP), based in Dresden, Germany, has been developing various applications for OLED microdisplays based on organic semiconductors. By integrating the capabilities of an image sensor directly into the microdisplay, eye movements can be recorded by the smart glasses and utilised for guidance and control functions.
Merck, a leading German science and technology company, announced that it has opened its new production plant for OLED materials in Darmstadt, Germany. After a 14-month construction period, high-purity OLED materials for use in state-of-the-art displays and lighting systems are being produced in the approximately 3600m2 building.
SmartKem, the UK-based developer of the truFLEX semiconductor platform for the manufacture of flexible displays and electronics, has had notification of patent allowance for its semiconductor material in China, a key market for the roll-out of its technology platform with display manufacturers across Asia.
