Kyulux logo Kyulux, established in Japan in 2015, develops next generation materials for OLED displays and lighting.

Based on exclusively-licensed technology from Kyushu University, Kyulux develops hyperfluorescence TADF emitters that will enable cost-effective, durable and efficient OLEDs that do not rely on rare metals. Kyulux’s first aim is to develop commercial red, green and yellow hyperfluorescence emitter/host combinations, to replace the 2nd-Gen phosphorescent emitters currently used in OLED displays and lighting panels.


Cynora logoCynora, established in 2003 in Germany, is developing new materials for OLEDs and OPVs, and is also involved with component design and production processes. In October 2012 the company unveiled flexible solution-based OLED prototypes that use the company's own emitter materials.

In July 2013 Germany’s BMBF launched the cyCESH project which aims to develop soluble (printable) materials for low-cost high efficiency OLED lighting devices, Cynora is the leader of the consortium in this €6 million project, together with Novaled and the University of Regensburg.

Universal Display Corporation (UDC)

Universal Display (UDC) logoUniversal Display (UDC) is an OLED research company, and one of the field's pioneers. UDC is involved in OLED IP, and holds many patent related to the commercialization of phosphorescent based OLEDs and also flexible, transparent and stacked OLEDs - for both display and lighting applications. The company offers both emitting and host materials.

UDC licenses its OLED production IP, and also sells OLED chemicals. UDC lists Samsung, LG, Pioneer, Panasonic Idemitsu OLED lighting and Konica Minolta as its licensees. UDC is working with many other companies, including Sony, DuPont and Novaled. Back in 2009 UDC claimed that "virtually All AMOLEDs on the market use our technology".
