Dow Corning wins US Display Consortium OLED contract

May 4, 2005
May 4, 2005, San Jose, CA--A new U.S. Display Consortium (USDC) R&D contract awarded to Dow Corning (Midland, MI) will focus on developing novel hole injection materials (HIM) for production of higher efficiency organic light emitting diode devices (OLED) suitable for high-definition displays. The USDC and Dow Corning will equally share the $2.39 million development cost.

May 4, 2005, San Jose, CA--A new U.S. Display Consortium (USDC) R&D contract awarded to Dow Corning (Midland, MI) will focus on developing novel hole injection materials (HIM) for production of higher efficiency organic light emitting diode devices (OLED) suitable for high-definition displays. The USDC and Dow Corning will equally share the $2.39 million development cost.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, "to realize the full potential of OLED technology, new materials and systems are needed that offer vastly improved efficiency and stability in the active regions of the device: cathode and anode layers, electron and hole transport and injection layers, emission layers, and carrier blocking layers." The Dow Corning project will address these challenges by developing new HIM systems to overcome processing and performance problems associated with conventional HIMs while maintaining or enhancing the desired properties, such as OLED brightness, efficiency and lifetime.
