Noctiluca continues to improve its TADF emitter platform

This is a sponsored post by Noctiluca

Poland-based TADF developer Noctiluca reports that the company continues to improve its emitter platform, and the company recently concluded testing a new family of emitters that have revealed great TADF properties, good to excellent QY and blue emission. Noctiluca released the raw data (available from company under the NDA) that details the performance of several new blue emitters. Here is a link to the summary of these results.

Noctiluca’s Team have a history of making custom high purity compounds to specific needs, and its TADF compound family has a high level of customization which will allow the company to tailor its materials for specific OLED stacks. In fact the company's next step is to work with industry leaders and OLED material developers to test its materials within commercial-grade OLED stack architectures to continue its development work and enhance the performance of its OLED emitters.

OLEDWorks to introduce a new high-performance multi-stack OLED microdisplay technology

OLED lighting developer OLEDWorks announced that it has developed a high-performance multi-stack OLED microdisplay technology. Next week at SID Displayweek OLEDWorks will present the technology, and results from 3, 4 and 5-stack microdisplay formulations.

OLEDWorks explains that it has realized its multi-stack OLED lighting technology, with its very high performance, can be applied to microdisplays - and the results are "exceptional". The company says that combined wit its unique and cost-effective manufacturing technology, microdisplays based on this new technology could combine high brightness, long lifetimes, exceptional power efficiencies - all at a low manufacturing cost.

Samsung's net profit in Q2 2020 totaled $4.67 billion (an increase of 7% from Q2 2019), while its revenues were $44.4 billion (down 6% from last year).

DSCC lowers its OLED material revenue forecast, now sees a $2.06 billion market in 2024

DSCC updated its OLED material market forecasts, seeing a lower growth ahead. DSCC says the AMOLED stack material market will grow from $928 million in 2019 to $2.06 billion in 2024 in a CAGR of 17%. Only a couple of months ago DSCC estimated that the market in 2024 will reach $2.69 billion - and even these were reduced from earlier estimates due to COVID-19.

DSCC says that the main reason behind the reduction in its forecast is lower OLED TV capacity. The company now expects a slower ramp up at the Guangzhou fab, and LG's P-10 10.5-Gen fab is now removed from the forecast period.
