DuPont Makes OLED Breakthrough

Dupont announced yesterday that it has made a significant technology breakthrough in the area of organic, light-emitting diodes. The firm said that its researchers in Santa Barbara, California and Wilmington, Delaware have made a breakthrough in commercialization of OLEDs for next generation flat panel displays. The firm said that its breakthrough enables high performance and long lifetime of small molecule OLED materials with a printing process, that allows it to scale displays to larger displays than current technology. OLEDs are being used for cellular phones and MP3 players today; Dupont said that it expects it technology to be used for larger displays, including large screen televisions.
