Dupont at SID 2012
Dupont published some new OLED material specification, you can see them in the photo below. The lifetime (LT50) of their Blue fluorescent material is now over 33,000 hours (the the 0.14c0.13 blue, anyway) - which they say is good enough for OLED TVs. Their solution-processed materials are now more efficient than their evaporated-materials, but lifetime is probably lower (it's a bit hard to know since they only publish LT95 for those materials).
I had an interesting discussion with a Dupont employee involved in their OLED program. In January 2012 it was reported that the company is building a $30 million pilot production line for OLED TV displays using their new nozzle printing technology. It turns out that the report wasn't accurate - the facility that DuPont is building is a material production facility. They have no intention to start producing displays...
A while back UDC's Sid Rosenblatt said that Samsung is Dupont's asian Nozzle-printing licensee. I didn't manage to get a confirmation for that though.
Dupont does intend to provide a whole stack of OLED materials. Currently they offer HIL, HTL, EML (emissive) and ETL materials.
