Printing OLED displays: has its time finally come?
Solution processed light emitting organic materials were demonstrated in 1989 with a tiny 0.1 EQE (external quantum efficiency). Since then there has been tremendous progress on material synthesis/production as well as on display processing. However, thus far, commercialization has remained elusive. In this article we will argue that the page may be about to turn.
13th Edition of Graphene B2B Conference Approaches
Like many advanced materials, there is a significant learning curve to progress promising lab results to real commercial products. This includes a learning experience from the manufacturer, for cost-effective high-volume production, and a learning experience for the end-user, to establish the value and utilisation of this market entry. IDTechEx have been following this market throughout this learning experience, and the 13th edition of their commercially focussed B2B graphene conference, Graphene & 2D Materials, will be held from 10 - 11 April 2019 in Berlin, Germany.
Quantum dots: technology evolution display, lighting, sensor material
Quantum dots are a commercial success for nanotechnology. They are already used in display applications. In this article, we discuss multiple innovation and commercialization frontiers of this technology.
Out of Academia, Into Industry: Printed Electronics Business
Printed, Flexible and Organic Electronics is a market worth $31.6 Billion in 2018, according to IDTechEx Research. The majority of that is for OLED displays, with glass-based versions now entering their golden age and foldable OLEDs and printed OLEDs now entering a phase of commercial growth. Then there is the near $2 Billion market for conductive ink used in many diverse applications and the $3.6 Billion market for sensors, mainly comprising of biosensors so far.
Cheaper way to light up OLED screens
Chemists have found a cheaper way to light up smartphone and TV screens, which could save manufacturers and consumers money without affecting visual quality. Copper is the answer, according to their study.
Lithium-sulfur battery specialist Oxis Energy announces new investors
OXIS Energy is growing exponentially as several significant companies want to fund the latest lithium sulfur battery technology.
IDTechEx Show! Agenda Live: Connecting Brands & Emerging Technologies
The IDTechEx Show! on April 10-11 in Berlin brings together eight key disruptive technologies and their customers at one venue.
Transparent Conductive Films and Materials: Transition from old to new
The market composition of transparent conductive films and materials has not dramatically shifted for some years. It is heavily reliant upon select markets such as flat consumer small/medium sized electronic touch screens. Indeed, the IDTechEx Research report Transparent Conductive Films and Materials 2018-2028: Forecasts, Technologies, Players puts this reliance around 85-90% today. The emergence of new applications has also been slower than many had predicted and hoped. This report finds that so-called 'old' applications are still the vast majority of the market.
