LG confirms its latest OLED TV panels use microlens arrays, brands it as META Technology

A few days ago LG Electronics unveiled its 2023 OLED TV range, which included the OLED G3, LG's slim all-in-one design OLED TV which is LG's brightest OLED TV yet. As we reported, LG Display announced today that its latest OLED panel adopts a micro-lens array to boost the performance.

Branded as META Technology, the OLED Panel is covered with a micro lens array to maximize the light emission. LGD says that this increase the brightness by 60%, and also increases the viewing angles by 30%. The G3 panel has a peak brightness of 2,100 nits.

LGD: all of our new OLED panels use deuterium-based OLED.EX technology

In December 2021, LG Display unveiled its OLED.EX (Evolution and eXperience) technology, that are based on deuterium-enhanced compounds to increase brightness by up to 30%. The company now announced that it has completed upgrading all of its WOLED TV production lines (in Korea and China) to EX technology, and all new panels will use the new materials.

LG Display says to develop the OLED.EX technology, it has converted the hydrogen elements present in organic light emitting elements into stable deuterium. LGD extracts the deuterium compounds from water, and after stabilization, the compounds allow the OLED devices to be brighter - and also last longer.

Researchers suggest using the dipole moments of TADF host materials to increase emission performance

Researchers from the University of Cambridge, led by Dr Alex Gillett, have studied the effect of host materials (the dielectric environment) on the performance of TADF OLED emitters, and specifically how the dipole moment of the host material can affect the rISC rate of the TADF component.

The researchers tested several TADF OLED materials, and in some of these materials, the effect of different host materials can be quite dramatic. It is believed that commercial TADF devices could benefit from tuning the host and emitter combination to achieve higher performance, including a better efficiency roll-off as conversion of triplets into singlets can be accelerated.

Researchers from Shenzhen University designed efficient selenium-integrated TADF OLED emitters

Researchers from China's Shenzhen University are working towards efficient selenium-integrated TADF OLED emitters.

The researchers latest work detailed the structure-activity relationship between heavy atom effects and multiple resonance TADF performance. The researchers say that their new emitters effectively solve some of the issues inherent in TADF emission technology, specifically the sharp drop in emission at high brightness, what is called the emission roll-off.
