GE Global Research and TOKKI Corporation announced a joint agreement to develop PECVD Film Encapsulation technology and equipment for manufacturing organic electronics such as OLED displays.

The goal is to develop and demonstrate equipment that could serve as the foundation for the future manufacturing and sale of glass-based displays that are thinner in design and much lower in cost.

As part of the agreement, GE Global Research will license its patented PECVD film encapsulation process to TOKKI for use in the company's state-of-art OLED manufacturing equipment. OLED devices require a high degree of hermetic sealing or "encapsulation," since moisture and oxygen can impede the devices' functionality.
