Light in new shape
BMBF-funded joint project R2D2 will start in November 2014 aiming at the investigation of production-related processes and technologies for the manufacturing of flexible OLED.
The Apple Watch is a sign that flexible displays are finally coming
The Apple Watch was officially announced earlier this month, with the promise that it will come with a flexible display. However, there is some confusion about what the term means and what the benefits are for consumers. Dr Guillaume Chansin, co-author of the IDTechEx report "OLED Display Forecasts 2014-2024: the rise of plastic and flexible displays" gives his view on flexible displays.
After a complete reorganization in 2008, CYNORA started the development of organic functional materials for OLEDs and OPV. CYNORA wants to increase the efficiency of fluorescence to a level comparable to phosphorescence. The company says that Singlet Harvesting does not require iridium. Instead, the chemistry is based on copper compounds.
Samsung Display (SDC) is the leading manufacturer of AMOLED displays. SDC was spun off in April 2012 as a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics.

OLED displays in wearable devices
OLED displays have been very successful in mobile phones. As consumer electronics companies are trying to identify the next big thing, there is now a proliferation of "wearables" - devices that can be worn on the body. OLED technology brings some distinct advantages in these applications, such as thinner and curved displays.
Plastic Logic next step in organic flexible AMOLED demonstrator
Plastic Logic, experts in the development and industrialisation of flexible organic electronics, has shown the second in its series of all-plastic flexible AMOLED display demonstrators.
