As demand increases for OLED displays over the next few years DuPont will be ready to create not only small OLED screens used in the Google Nexus and HTC desire but larger OLED panels for HDTV’s. DuPont have perfected a production process that can create a 50 inch OLED panel in under two minutes.
The printing method uses a special Dainippon printer and DuPont’s third-generation OLED inks and allows Dupont not only to create larger panels but create them at a much lower cost than before. Dupont say that the panels they are creating using this method will have an approximate life of 15 years with an average daily usage of 8 hours a day.
OLEDs are a much more sustainable display technology when compared with current LCD ones and OLED’s have the potential for lower power consumption and eliminate the need for many of the LCD components, such as backlights and color filters.
