LG Electronics slashes its OLED TV prices in Korea

According to a report from Korea, LG Electronics have lowered the price of its new OLED TV models by around 20%, compared to last year prices - in order to stay competitive and increase the demand.

The 2021 65-inch OLED evo G1, for example, is priced at 4.6 million Korean Won ($4,090 USD), which is 17.9% lower than the price of the 2020 65" OLED GX model at launch (5.6 million Won). The rest of the 2021 OLED TV models are offered at similarly lower prices.

New OLED device structure, called OPB-LET, offers promising performance

Researchers from Dresden's Technical University (TUD) developed a new OLED device structure that combine vertical organic permeable base transistors (OPBT) and OLEDs materials - organic permeable base light-emitting transistor, or OPB-LET.

The device architecture of organic permeable base light-emitting transistors (OPB-LET)

The new design successfully combines the function of a highly efficient switching transistor and an organic light-emitting diode. The OLED transistors (OLETs) are three-terminal devices combining a thin-film transistor with a light-emitting diode. Unlike previous OLETs, the OPB-LET offer high performance, thanks to the permeable base electrode located at the center of the device. The electrode forms a distinctive optical microcavity and so regulates the charge carrier injection and transport.

Visionox spins-off its PMOLED business to a new company called Qingyue

China-based OLED maker Visionox has spun-off its PMOLED business, to create a new company called Qingyue. Visionox will not focus on AMOLED production (after having spun-off its OLED lighting unit Yeolight back in 2015).

Qingyue, which is one of the world's leading PMOLED makers, has two 370x400 mm production lines, each with a capacity of 8,000 monthly substrates (around 1.75 million 1” displays).

UDC and PPG to establish a new PHOLED production site in Ireland

PPG Industries and Universal Display established a strategic relationship in 2000, and since then PPG is the exclusive producer of UDC's PHOLED emitter materials. The two companies announced that they will establish a new manufacturing site in Shannon, Ireland, for the production of UDC's emitters.

The new facility will double the production capacity of UDC's OLED emitters at PPG, and will also diversify the company's manufacturing base. UDC leased the Ireland site (which, up until now, was producing pharmaceutical intermediates) and will adapt it to PHOLED production. Facility improvements and regulatory approvals are expected to be completed in the next 12 months, and operations are scheduled to commence in early 2022.
