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.

In March 2016 Kyulux raised $13.5 million from Samsung, LG, Japan Display, JOLED and more.

Wisechip explains the development effort behind its HF-TADF PMOLED

Last month PMOLED maker WiseChip demonstrated a Hyperfluoresence TADF PMOLED display in a trade show in Japan, following a collaboration with HF TADF developer Kyulux. Wisechip says it will bring its first HF-TADF PMOLEDs to the market by the end of 2017.

Kyulux today uploaded Wisechip's presentation from the TADF workshop. In this lecture Wisechip’s VP of R&D Engineering Division, Dr. York Tsai, gave a presentation that detailed the Hyperfluorescence-PMOLED development effort and the performance boost enabled by the new material.

Wisechip to commercialize Hyperfluorescence TADF PMOLEDs by year's end

Hyperfluoresence TADF materials developer Kyulux announced a collaboration with PMOLED maker WiseChip to bring Hyperfluoresence TADF emitter based displays to the market by year's end. Wisechip demonstrated an HF TADF display at the TADF Workshop last week in Fukuoka, Japan.

The PMOLED display shown by Wisechip was a 0.96" monochrome yellow 128x64 one. The demonstration showed how much brighter (or more efficient) the Hyperfluoresence based display is compared to Wisechip's current fluoresent-based displays. The power saving is almost 50%.

OLED-Info at the TADF Workshop in Kyushu University next week

Next week Kyushu University (in Fukuoka, Japan) will be hosting the 2nd International TADF Workshop. The event aims to share the recent advances and future direction of TADF science and technologies.

The OLED-Info team will attend this exciting workshop. The focus will be on academia oriented lectures, but the event will also include talks from the Dow Chemical Company, Japan Display, BOE Technology Group, Wisechip and TADF developer Kyulux who's sponsoring the event. The workshop will also include a small exhibition and poster sessions.

Kyulux recruits Kateeva's Dr. Chris Brown as VP of products

Dr. Chris Brown photoHyperfluoresence TADF materials developer Kyulux announced that Dr. Chris Brown will join the company as VP of Products. Dr. Brown will lead Kyulux's product development and delivery efforts ahead of the company's anticipated first commercial deployments of TADF and Hyperfluorescence materials in the coming year.

Dr. Brown joins Kyulux from OLED inkjet equipment maker Kateeva, where he was Vice President of Process Engineering. Dr. Brown has been granted 31 US patents and has 34 publications.

Nanoco and Kyulux to co-develop hybrid OLED / QLED display technology

Hyperfluoresence and TADF OLED emitter developer Kyulux and quantum-dot developer Nanoco announced that the two companies will co-develop a future-generation hybrid OLED / QLED display technology that combines Kyulux's hyperflourescent emitters and Nanoco's heavy metal free quantum dots (CDQDs).

Kyulux and Nanoco say that future displays based on this technology will have superior qualities compared to existing displays - high degree of brightness, energy efficiency, color purity and low cost.

Meet Kyulux at SID 2017

The following is a sponsored message by Kyulux

The SID Display Week, which will take place next week in Los Angeles, California, is one of the most important events in the display industry. This year's Display Week will provide an excellent chance to be updated on the latest advances by Kyulux, the Japan-based OLED TADF and Hyperfluoresence material developer.

Hyperfluorescence combines TADF and fluorescence to provide the ultimate OLED emission technology, and unlike phosphorescence, it enables full RGB color, 100% IQE and pure narrow spectrum color. Hyperfluorescence is set to replace existing emitter technologies by early 2020, and Kyulux aims to release its first commercial materials by 2018.

Is TADF the future of efficient OLED emitters?

This is a premium OLED-Info article

TADF, or Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence, represents a class of OLED emitter materials that aim to provide efficient and long-lifetime performance. TADF research started in earnest in 2012, and some believe that TADF represent an exciting new platform for next-gen OLED emitters.

As OLED display adoption grows, researchers and developers at Universities and companies are looking to develop more efficient and cost-effective OLED materials. There are currently three main drivers for these efforts - the development of an efficient and long-lasting blue color emitter, the development of alternative non-phosphorescent emitters and the development of soluble materials that can be deposited in ink-jet printing and other "wet" methods.

Kyulux licenses Harvard's material screening software

Kyulux logo

Last week we reported about a new large-scale computer-driven material screening process that was developed by Researchers from Harvard University, MIT and Samsung.

The so-called Molecular Space Shuttle system combines theoretical and experimental chemistry, machine learning and cheminformatics, with an aim to quickly identify new OLED molecules (the system was already used to deisgn more than a 1,000 new high-performance blue-light emitting molecules). Today Kyulux announced that it secured a license to Harvard University’s Molecular Space Shuttle deep learning system.

Kyulux: advancing fast to commercialize yellow, green and blue TADF emitters

Kyulux logoIn early 2016, Kyushu University in Japan spun-off a new start-up called Kyulux to commercialize the TADF emitters developed at the University. A few months later, Kyulux raised $13.5 million (from LG, Samsung, Japan Display and JOLED).

We have met with Kyulux's team at SID 2016, who updated us that the company is progressing fast on the way to commercialize those TADF emitters. The first products to be ready are green and yellow emitters. Kyulux says that its Hyper-fluorescence TADF emitters offer a superior performance compared to PHOLED emitters (in both intensity and color purity) - and they should also be priced lower - so the company aims to provide a viable alternative to UDC's emitters in the near future.
