Kyulux announced that it has signed joint-development agreements (JDAs) with both LG Display and Samsung Display. The LGD agreement was signed in January 2018 while the SDC one was recently signed. Both agreements focus on deep blue Hyperfluoresence / TADF emitters.
Kyulux hopes that by collaborating with the two leading OLED producers, it will be able to accelerate its material development - and it aims to have commercial red, green and blue HF/TADF emitters ready by mid 2019.
Last month Kyulux announced that it dramatically improved the performance of its blue Hyperfluoresence/TADF OLED emitter. Kyulux's latest material reached a lifetime of 100 hours at LT95 (@ 750 cd/m2) while maintaining a high EQE of 26% - 22% at 1,000 cd/m2. The emission wavelength is 470 nm. Kyulux says that this blue HF emitter is the world’s top performing material at the moment.
In May 2018 Kyulux and Wisechip unveiled a 1.71″ 256x64 flexible PMOLED display that uses Kyulux’s Hyperfluoresence yellow emitter. Wisechip says that the power consumption of this display is almost half of Wisechip's regular fluorescent yellow PMOLED. The display is "ready to be produced " and Wisechip says this will enter mass production before the end of 2018).
