Kyulux concludes a successful SID DisplayWeek 2019

The premier display industry event, SID DisplayWeek, took place last week in San Jose, California. As in previous years, Kyulux had a booth which drew many visitors. Visitors were impressed with Kyulux’s blue material development and the potential for mass production readiness soon. At our booth, we exhibited our Hyperfluorescence™ technology and will also showed Wisechip’s yellow HF PMOLED panel.

Many future-technology teams from large companies visited our booth and it was great to see the industry’s expert learning about Hyperfluorescence and TADF and this again emphasized the great need for a stable and efficient blue OLED emitter.
