LG Display shows a new 30" transparent OLED display, suggests new transporation applications

LG Display has showcased its latest transparent OLED solutions for mobility applications at InnoTrans 2022, a trade fair for transport technology.

LGD shows its 55" 38% transparency FHD transparent displays, that actually has been adopted for subway windows before. Interestingly, LGD has also unveiled a new transparent OLED display - a smaller 30" display that offers higher transparency - 45%. You can see both of these displays in the video above.

LG Display equips a tour bus in Korea with transparent OLEDs to create an augmented reality tour

LG Display has equipped a tour bus in Korea's Suwon town with transparent OLED displays, to enable a sort of augmented-reality tour that overlays historic images that simulate life in Suwon in 1795.

LGD says that "historical figures come to life as animated scenes match up with the fortress walls to show them in their original setting. You get to sense what this city would have looked like centuries ago, and how people in traditional dress would have lived and celebrated major events. There’s even a demonstration of old technologies during the tour, with text in Korean and English to guide you along".

OLED material maker Margik raises around $1 million on Unicorn Hunters

US-based Margik (previously Light and Charge Solutions) was featured at the Unicorn Hunters second season episode 14, and the company ended up raising 10 million Unicoins (a cryptocurrency initiated by the show, that is currently worth $1 million).

Margik, established in 2019, designs next-generation electron and hole transport materials (ETM, HTL) for organic electronic devices, including OLED lighting and display panels. The company says its materials offer high thermal stability and high resistance to moisture. Margik collaborates with Inuru to produce OLED based flexible "stickers".

A desk with an integrated transparent OLED monitor wins this year's OLED Go! Design Competition

LG Display, together with British design magazine Dezeen recently launched the 2nd OLED Go! Design competition. LGD announced the winner of this year's competition, the Caelum desk, designed by Turkish designer Cagatay Afsar.

Caelum integrates a 27-inch transparent OLED displays into the desk partition, eliminating the need for a separate monitor to free up desk real estate and reduce household clutter. When not in use, the display can switch to its transparent mode as to seamlessly blend in with the room’s décor.

LGD installs 38 transparent OLED screens at a futuristic bakery in Korea

LG Display has deployed 38 55" transparent OLED displays at a new bakery in Korea. This is a "futuristic" flagship branch of Korea-based Paris Baguette, in Pangyo. LG says that in this new bakery, new products and services can be experienced first, and this goes in line with the adoption of the transparent screens.

This is the largest ever transparent OLED installation, where these OLEDs are used to create a giant digital signage system. The screens are used in the store's entrance, as a smart partition between the baking station and the store, as transparent art wall, and also as transparent signage on the windows, on the bread stand.

Kyulux explains how narrow-spectrum Hyperfluorescence emission is more efficient than PHOLED emission

Second-generation OLED phosphorescence emission features an internal quantum efficiency of almost 100% - which would normally mean you cannot get more efficient than that.

As Kyulux explains in a recent post, though, phosphorescent suffers from a wide emission spectrum. In order to achieve a good color gamut (for which as narrow-spectrum emission as possible is best) display makers have to filter out the "tail" of the emission. This results in reduced brightness and efficiency.

Here is BOE's 12.5" flexible transparent OLED display prototype

BOE is showing a new flexible and transparent display prototype at SID Displayweek, this is something we did not see for several years.

The display on show is a 12.5" panel that offers a transmittance of up to 45%. The brightness is 700 nits, and the pixel density is 80 PPI. BOE says it developed a unique pixel scheme to enable the transparency of this display.
