OLEDs: Innovations, Manufacturing, Markets

World-Class Conference | 10 & 11 April 2024 | Online Event

This event focuses on innovations in materials, manufacturing, applications, and markets for OLEDs. OLEDs are already a commercial success for years and yet the the pace of incremental and radical technological innovations and breakthroughs is incredible, furthering device properties [color, stability, resolution, color gamut, brightness, etc], expanding applications, and opening new manufacturing and patterning techniques from photolithography to inkjet printing and beyond.

These innovations could not only entrench the success of OLEDs further, addressing their weak spots, but also perhaps take away the selling points of challengers or alternatives like MicroLEDS, QD-LCDs, etc. Understanding the OLED market and industry dynamics is a must for microLED professionals.

This event is curated by TechBlick and OLED-Info.com. It is part of the MicroLED Connect series - accessible with a Virtual or Hybrid Annual Pass.

MicroLEDs used to fix and replace an old OLED lighting installation in Taipei

Many years ago, The W Hotel in Taipei installed an OLED installation called You Fade to Light, designed by rAndom International creative studio and powered by Philips' OLED lighting panels. This beautiful piece consists of 2,000 modules, each lighting up as a response to people moving in front of it.

After several years these OLED panels started to fail (and fade, which is rather ironic given the installation's name), and now the hotel replaced the OLED panels with microLED-powered panels. It is said that the microLEDs achieved the same level of uniformity and light output of the OLEDs, maybe even surpassing them.
