An interview with Pixelligent's CEO, to discuss the company's technology and latest OLED industry updates

US-based Pixelligent is an advanced materials company that delivers next generation optical materials applications in lighting and displays. For the OLED industry, Pixelligent offers materials that significantly increase light output by increasing the refractive index of materials in the device.

Pixelligent's President and CEO, Craig Bandes, was kind enough to answe a few questions we had, to learn more about Pixelligent and its solutions for the OLED industry.

Hello Craig! Can you explain your technology and materials and how they enhance the efficiency of OLED display?

We are best known for our high refractive index (HRI) nanocrystal formulations and dispersions that deliver breakthrough performance in next-generation electronics, like extended reality, displays, optics, and sensors. We designed our PixJet®, PixNIL®, and PixClear® products to offer the best combination of brightness, clarity, operating efficiencies, and device-lifetime.

LG deploys a beautiful transparent OLED installation at a Starbucks branch in Seoul

LG Display and Starbucks Korea jointly installed a beautiful "transparent OLED Table" at Starbucks' Yeosu Dolsan DT Branch. The installation includes 12 55-inch transparent OLED TVs panels.

The 8-meters long table is placed at the center of the store, and display the images of rolling waves to create an experience like seating at the beach. The displays include sensors that create wave effects when coffee mugs are placed on the table. The transparent displays are placed above what appears to be actual sand.

Toray Research Center discusses OLED device analysis and technologies in an open webinar

Toray Research Center (TRC) has launched its open online webinar focused on OLED technologies. TRC, who supplies technical analysis and support for R&D and manufacturing, invites you to attend the online lectures at no cost, to get a deeper understanding on OLED technologies and analysis of OLED devices. The webinar recordings are now accessible for two weeks.

The first lecture, titled 'current analytical techniques for displays', will focus on current techniques used for OLED analysis, including OLED layers observation by high-contrast STEM, OLED layer construction analysis by GCIB-TOF-SIMS and TOF-SIMS MS/MS and quantification analysis using LC/CAD. The same lecture will also discuss recent topics in analysis technology, including the degradation analysis of QD devices.

Motorola unveils a new bendable phone concept based on an LGD pOLED display

Motorola has demonstrated a new concept phone design, which they refer to as a Adaptive Display Concept. This is a smart bendable phone, that sports a 6.9" FHD+ (2220x1080) flexible AMOLED display produced by LG Display.

The adaptive display concept can be adjusted from a standard Android phone experience in a flat position to being wrapped for a wrist-worn experience or positioned in several stand modes.

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.

New laser repair system developed to fix AMOLED smartphone screen defects

An interesting video review shows a new repair system, based on lasers, that can fix defects in smartphone AMOLED displays. The system uses optical microscopy to find defects in operating OLED displays, and then a laser is used to fix the problems:

Such systems can be useful, but of course won't be able to fix all problems and defects in AMOLED displays, only ones that were caused by physical problems in conductive lines in the OLED module, that can be fixed by lasers. It will be interesting to see if these machines will truly find a place in the OLED repair aftermarket scene.
