Presentation Summary

White OLED panel has successfully developed with high quality emission characteristics such as higher efficacy and higher CRI than conventional fluorescent lamps , very small variation of chromaticity in different directions.
Excellent Colour consistency between panels and constancy during the lifetime has been achieved...
A two-unit structure was employed with a phosphorescent blue emissive unit and a phosphorescent green and red emissive unit.
A new mass production method including printing process with a slit coating technology and in-line evaporation process with hot wall technology has been developed.
