with an oled display, thin is in.
There may be one in front of your phone.
Check your living room next year.
Your TV screen may be one. OLED--
Short for organic LEDs--
According to Barry Young, senior vice president, Austin, Texas, it works as a display technology because it has the ability to shine when the current passes through it
Headquartered in display search, a display Group company.
Analyze and report the display industry.
\"By Doping organic materials with other materials, the light can produce any color.
Very thin luminous material--
An order of magnitude of 200 or 300 microns in total--
This means that the display itself can be very, very thin. \" [
Oled has two types of passive matrix and active matrix.
The passive matrix display is much more limited than the active display, and can only be used for display of about 2 inch diagonal at present;
However, active matrix oled can be used in displays with diagonal lines up to 70 inch.
\"To understand why OLED technology is important, you have to distinguish it from the existing LCD technology.
The LCD displays transmit light by backlight by acting as a liquid crystal for the shutter.
The LCD is either turned on or off.
The rest of the light is sent out through the color filter to get the color, \"Young said.
Instead, \"OLED is just the material you open.
It does not require backlight or color filters.
You just have to pass the current through the organic material, and you will get red, green or blue depending on the doping method of the material--
Any color is OK.
The end result is a simpler device. \" [
The thickness of Oled is also important. \"Instead of [LCD]
The display is 3mm to 10mm thick and the OLED display is less than 1mm thick, \"Young said.
\"With the development of this technology, you can even make wallpaper with it.
\"Oled is also flexible, so the display can be bent and can meet various requirements.
But the most important thing in display technology is performance;
Here, the oled also beat the LCD, Young said. [
\"When you look at oled from both sides, it doesn\'t lose the image, so the viewing angle is 180 degrees up and 180 degrees down;
No change in contrast.
This is also a faster switching device, so fast moving TV images do not have any remaining images on the screen.
\"It works as fast as the device runs,\" he notes . \".
Oled can provide perfect color saturation, which is essential for the imaging industry.
And the LCD has a backlight that is always in--
So even if the image is very dark, some light passes through ---
Oled can produce pure black and pure white.
At present, most OLED displays used in consumer electronics are passive matrix types.
In addition to the front display of the flip phone, they are also used for car sound systems and MP3 players.
Active Matrix displays will start to appear later this year and start to grow rapidly, Young said.
\"In the next year or two, we may see them in digital cameras, cameras, and camcorders, which range between 3 inch and 4 inch and are smaller.
In the long run, oled will make a beautiful TV.
\"The beginning of this trend is already happening because Sony is 11-inch and a 27-
Young said that the inch active OLED display TV at the Consumer Electronics Show in January is trying to bring oled TV to the market by the end of 2007.
Barry Young told Jennifer Kruger, editor of digital imaging digest that there is much more information about oled than it appears here.
