Universal Display Makes 200 dpi Transparent OLED
EWING, N.J. - May 24, 2005 - Universal Display Corporation (NASDAQ:PANL), the Company that's lighting the way in developing and commercializing OLED displays, today announced the development of the world's first high-resolution, active-matrix, transparent OLED (AM-TOLED) display using the Company's PHOLED(TM) phosphorescent OLED and TOLED(R) transparent OLED technologies along with amorphous silicon (a-Si) backplane technology developed by Professor Jin Jang at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, Korea.
The development of this high-resolution transparent OLED display is a step toward putting thin, low power, full-motion video displays that provide transparency when turned off into a variety of applications where preserving partial visibility or bi-directionality is important. These include architectural vision glass, entertainment, medical and industrial products, helmet shields for military, Homeland Security, fire and rescue applications, and other applications as yet unimagined.
This advance will be reported in a joint paper presented at the Society for Information Display (SID) International Symposium, Seminar & Exhibition, on May 26th by Dr. Yeh-Jiun Tung, Senior Scientist at Universal Display, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. Universal Display is demonstrating this 120 x 160 (QQVGA), 200 dots-per-inch (dpi) monochrome AM-TOLED, as well as an expanded line of PHOLED materials and other technology advances at SID booth #300 on May 24-26.
"This advance leverages the high-efficiency of our phosphorescent OLED technology, adding further support for the viable integration of OLEDs on amorphous silicon (a-Si) TFT backplanes in a variety of OLED displays," stated Steven V. Abramson, President and Chief Operating Officer of Universal Display. "Working with talented researchers at Kyung Hee University's Advanced Display Research Center, led by Professor Jin Jang, we have achieved an exciting milestone in demonstrating the world's highest resolution, active-matrix transparent OLED display."
